Prof. Ranasinghe (Assumption College, Worcester, MA, USA ) will defend the relevance of Citizenship and Christian Humanism in a time when we’re posed with a false choice between religious fundamentalism and godless consumerism. He will also argue that small educational institutions based on the ancient idea of (both Abrahamic and Homeric) hospitality can make it possible for us to recover the beloved community, a place where human beings can see their neighbors through the eyes of God and bring out the best in each other.

The lecture is free and open to all, no booking required.
