Latino Catholicism and the Unwritten Future of the Catholic Church in the U.S.
Please Join us on June 6 as we welcome Dr. Peter Casarella as our special guest.
Peter Casarella received his Ph.D. in 1992 from the department of Religious Studies at Yale University. He was the fourth President of the American Cusanus Society from 2009-2014 and has also served as President of the Academy of Catholic Hispanic Theologians in the U.S. and as President of the Academy of Catholic Theologians. In 2013, he went from DePaul University to the University of Notre Dame to become an Associate Professor. He proudly practices a collaborative model of theology. He has edited or co-edited a number of volumes of collaborative essays including: with George Schner, S.J., Christian Spirituality and the Culture of Modernity: The Thought of Louis Dupré (Eerdmans, 1998); with Will Storrar and Paul Metzger, A World for All? Global Civil Society in Political Theory and Trinitarian Theology (Eerdmans, 2011); Cusanus: The Legacy of Learned Ignorance (Catholic Univ. Press, 2006), Jesus Christ: The New Face of Social Progress (Eerdmans, 2015), and, with Mun’im Sirry, Finding Beauty in the Other: Theological Reflections across Religious Traditions (Crossroad, 2019). His monograph Word as Bread: Language and Theology in Nicholas of Cusa appeared with Aschendorff Verlag in 2017. He is currently working on a book on the doctrine of God from a Latino/a perspective: The God of the People.
Dr. Casarella will discuss the spiritual, cultural, and political dimensions of Latino Catholicism while introducing the audience to the discipline of Latino Theology.
