The Legacy of Humani Generis

June 10-11, 2020

Saint Anselm College

Manchester, NH

In commemoration of the seventieth anniversary of the publication of Humani Generis, the Institute for Saint Anselm Studies is pleased to announce a two-day conference on the teaching and impact of Pope Pius XII’s encyclical letter.

The Institute invites papers on the letter’s core interests, including the importance of reason to the life of faith, the successes and limitations of scholastic philosophy, theories of matter and spirit, the metaphysics of the Eucharist, the gratuity of the supernatural order, natural law, human evolution, monogenism and original sin, as well as the movement referred to as the nouvelle théologie and its leading figures, among them Henri Bouillard, Henri de Lubac and Hans Urs von Balthasar. In addition, papers are welcome on the thought of Donald Keefe, S.J., who grappled with these issues in the light both of these writers and of Humani Generis.

Selected papers will be published in The Journal of Saint Anselm Studies.

Please send an abstract of 100-200 words to mbrown@anselm.edu by December 16, 2019.
