IRVING, Texas (Sept. 29, 2023) — Friday, Sept. 29 marks the beginning of “The Adoro Te Lecture Series,” a collaborative effort of University of Dallas faculty members.
The series offers reflections on the body of Christ from theological, biblical and artistic perspectives. Professors of various departments are contributing to the project, an effort to “seed” the ongoing National Eucharistic Revival, as philosophy professor Matthew Walz, PhD, noted in a recent Our Sunday Visitor article.
“The Eucharist is the Food of foods, as it were, and I hope my lecture provides some grounds for seeing that more clearly and believing in it more firmly,” Walz said.
Tonight at 4 p.m., Walz will examine the Eucharist as “the fulfillment of all eating.” Philosophy professor Christopher Mirus, PhD, will deliver a presentation titled “Christus Poeta: The Eucharist as a Divine Work of Art.”
Each event includes two brief presentations and a moderated time of conversation. Along with faculty members from the Departments of Philosophy, Theology, History and English, speakers include members of the Cistercian and Dominican religious orders. The monthly series will last through April, with lectures slated for Oct. 26, Nov. 16, Feb. 8, March 21 and April 11.
