International Summer School and Conference 2019

ABOUT THE SCHOOL AND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

The title of our seventh annual Summer School and International Conference, Beyond Secular Faith is The Whole in the Fragment: Sacramental versus Contractual Logic.

"God is Love". This wager concerning the nature of God - theological in the deepest sense - is generated, not from an idea, but from the experience of the encounter with Jesus Christ, the primordial "sacrament" of the Father. It entails not only a judgment concerning the nature of God himself but a judgment concerning the nature and meaning of reality and of our embodiment. This Love, of which reality is a sign as Jesus is the sign of the Father, is rightly qualified as semper maior, a fact always greater than our ideas and predeterminations. As such, the sign of love always breaks open our contractual logic.

This year's summer school will be an attempt to think within the horizon of this semper maior, to pose the question of the human as bound up with the Love that is God himself and the world which is the concrete sign of that Love.

For six years our summer school has facilitated a rich and friendly theological, philosophical and cultural dialogue in freedom, in the unique setting of Granada, a breathtakingly beautiful city that lies at the historic crossroads of modernity and the Christian tradition.
