About the Speaker:

Dr. Robert Royal is the founding president of the Faith & Reason Institute in Washington D.C. and the editor-in-chief of the online magazine The Catholic Thing. His articles have appeared in many scholarly and popular publications including First Things, Communio, The Catholic Historical Review, Image, Wilson Quarterly, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, among others. His most recent book (2015) is A Deeper Vision: The Catholic Intellectual Tradition in the 20th Century. He speaks and writes frequently on questions of religion and culture, and has lectured in more than a dozen foreign countries.

One of the distinctive marks of Catholicism has always been its embrace of both faith and reason. From the earliest days of its spread into the ancient world, the Church has sought to make use of the best available cultural tools – philosophy, literature, art, music, law – both to understand revealed truths and to teach how they may be lived out in everyday life. Though in recent decades there has been a great deal of turmoil in the Church, modern Catholicism still represents a remarkably fertile marriage of faith and reason. In this lecture, noted author Robert Royal will offer a comprehensive view of this “Grand Tradition” in several disciplines and contemporary culture.
