(January 5, 2015) – The Department of Philosophy and Theology at the University of Saint Francis invites you to the free public lecture, “The Venerable Bede: What Can He Teach Us Today?” on Sunday, January 25, 2015 at 3 p.m. on the campus of the University of Saint Francis, North Campus Auditorium, 2702 Spring Street, Fort Wayne, IN. The lecture is the third in a series to be offered by university faculty members throughout the academic year.
The Venerable Bede (673-735 AD) was the most important Christian thinker in the so-called “Dark Ages.” He was a monk, a teacher, and a theologian who helped to solidify the life of the Church in Anglo-Saxon England. Dr. John Bequette, associate professor of Theology, will discuss some of Bede’s important writings, their impact on Bede’s own world, and what we can learn from them in our own day.
