Past Lectures

In order to bring analytic theology greater visibility among theologians and scholars of religion, the Center sponsors a series of lectures by prominent philosophers and theologians at the annual AAR convention. Topics for the sessions are normally chosen in such a way as to naturally relate to the topics of the preceding annual Logos workshop.
