Prophecy and Diplomacy: The Moral Doctrine of John Paul II : a Jesuit Symposium

By John J. Conley; Joseph W. Koterski | Go to book overview

INTRODUCTION
Prophecy and Diplomacy:
The Moral Teaching of
John Paul II

FOR A DECADE, the John Paul II Symposium has gathered Jesuit scholars for a biennial conference to explore the teaching of John Paul II. Interdisciplinary, the symposium features specialists from the fields of theology, philosophy, history, sociology, economics, and political science. Pluralist, the symposium fosters debate among Jesuits representing different positions on the theological and political spectrum. Jesuit, the symposium places scholarly research at the service of sentire cum ecclesia, the reverential “thinking with the Church” that has characterized the Society of Jesus since its origin.

The symposium has sponsored five conferences on major issues in the pontificate of John Paul II. The 1990 Loyola-Chicago conference focused on the global thought of John Paul II. The 1992 Fordham-New York conference studied his ecclesiology. The 1994 Canisius-Buffalo conference examined the pope’s fundamental moral theology. The 1996 Georgetown-Washington conference analyzed his applied ethical theory. The 1998 Georgetown-Washington conference discussed millennial themes in the documents of the pope.

An earlier volume edited by John M. McDermott, S.J., The Thought of John Paul II (Rome: Gregorian University Press, 1993), drew primarily upon papers from the 1990 Loyola and the 1992 Fordham conferences to provide a synthetic portrait of the pope’s distinctive philosophy and theology.

The current volume focuses upon the moral teaching of John Paul II. It incorporates papers, responses, and colloquia summaries
