Center for Catholic Thought
Professor Khaled Anatolios speaking about St. Athanaisus
Mission: The Center for Catholic Thought at Creighton University exists to feature and explore the Catholic intellectual tradition, broadly conceived, as it is expressed within and among the various disciplines of the Catholic university. While drawing upon the expertise of trained academics, the Center seeks to make that expertise widely available, serving as a bridge between the Catholic tradition and the broader culture.
Description: The Center for Catholic Thought at Creighton University was created in 2009. The Center serves students, faculty, staff, and the local Catholic community through a series of programs designed to explore and promote the Church’s intellectual tradition.
The Catholic Church has a long history of engaging the intersection of faith and reason. Catholicism, to mention one example, sees no conflict between the conclusions of science and the proclamation of the Gospel. Catholic Universities are especially well positioned to become centers of excellence where the Catholic intellectual tradition is able to prosper and thrive.
The Center currently sponsors the podcast Catholic Comments, the annual Michael G. Lawler Theology Lecture, an annual lecture by a prominent church leader, and various interdisciplinary programs throughout the academic year.
