Archbishop Miller Lecture Explores Theology of the Body
Dr. Michael Waldstein will present the annual Archbishop J. Michael Miller Lecture, “Overcoming the Mechanization of Nature: John Paul II’s Theology of the Body,” from 7:30 to 9 p.m. on Sept. 29 in Jones Hall, 3910 Yoakum.

Each year the Miller lecture invites an expert who has overcome the dichotomy of faith and life and risen to greatness precisely by embodying the values of the Catholic Intellectual tradition.

Waldstein has served as the Max Seckler Professor of Theology at Ave Maria University since 2008. He was an associate professor at the University of Notre Dame from 1988 to 1996. He served as the founding president of the International Theological Institute in Gaming, Austria, where he also held the position of St. Francis of Assisi Professor of New Testament (1996-2008).

His published works include a critical edition of the four Coptic manuscripts of the Gnostic Secret Book of John and a new translation of John Paul II’s Man and Woman He Created Them: A Theology of the Body as well as articles on the Gospel of John, Gnosticism, St. Thomas Aquinas, John Paul II and Hans Urs von Balthasar.

The lecture is named in honor of former University of St. Thomas president Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, who was appointed as the archbishop of Vancouver in January 2008. This lecture is made possible through the generosity of the John W. and Alida M. Considine Foundation. The event is sponsored by the UST Catholic Studies Program.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Parking is available for $2 in the Moran Center parking garage, 3807 Graustark. Contact Sr. Paula Jean Miller, FSE, at 713-525-6989 for more information.
