Personal Idealism and the Christian Faith

30th June - 2nd July 2017



Greek philosophy shaped traditional Christian doctrines. But we now understand the world in a very different way and there is a need to look past Plato, Aristotle and Aquinas to new philosophical resources. Keith Ward forwards that these resources are to be found in philosophical Idealism. This weekend will be devoted to showing how this leads to reformulations of Christian doctrines, but not to a rejection of Christian faith.

Keith Ward is a leading British philosopher, theologian, priest and scholar. He is a fellow of the British Academy and a priest of the Church of England. Keith was a canon of Christ Church, Oxford until 2003 and Regius Professor of Divinity at the University of Oxford from 1991 to 2004. He is the author of many books including Ethics and Christianity, The Concept of God and Is Christianity a Historical Religion.
