Dr. Ilia Delio, OSF,  presents a lecture on "Evolution and the Primacy of Christ:  From Scotus to Teilhard." How do we understand the meaning of Jesus Christ in an evolutionary universe? Franciscan theologian Duns Scotus said that love and not sin was the reason for the incarnation, an idea which influenced the thought of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. This lecture will explore the theology of Pierre Teilhard through the primacy of love and the emergence of Christ in evolution. Recorded live at CTU on October 6, 2015, for the Duns Scotus Lecture.
