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.

First, I would like to squelch any rumors about my having to borrow a Capuchin habit for today's event.  Yes, this is my solemn profession habit from 1972; it is admittedly in pristine condition, and although not quite saving it for this moment, I did want to be part of the brown wave that ripples across CTU today; furthermore, since the religious barb of the mendicants was both a choir robe as well as at the origin of the academic gown, it seems fitting in this conjunction of prayer and scholarship to don the capuche.
