Excerpt

The 1989 Père Marquette Lecture in Theology is the twentieth in a series commemorating the missions and explorations of Père Jacques Marquette, S.J. (1637-75). This series of annual lectures was begun in 1969 under the auspices of the Marquette University Department of Theology.

The lecture series is endowed by the Joseph A. Auchter Family Endowment Fund. Joseph Auchter (1894-1986), a native of Milwaukee, was a banking and paper industry executive and a long-time supporter of education. The fund was established by his children as a memorial to him.

The 1989 lecture was delivered at Marquette University on April 9, 1989, by Dr. William E. May, Ordinary Professor of Moral Theology at the Catholic University of America. Born in 1928, Professor May began his career as a philosophical and theological editor, working principally with the Bruce Publishing Company in Milwaukee. In 1968 he completed a doctorate in philosophy at Marquette University. He has taught at the Catholic University of America since 1971.
