MOVED TO HOGAN BALLROOM

Edgardo A. Colón-Emeric, Irene and William McCutchen Associate Professor of Reconciliation and Theology at Duke University Divinity School, will give a lecture titled "The Scandal of the Transfiguration: San Óscar Romero’s Message to Today’s Church." He will explain martyr bishop Saint Óscar Romero’s conviction that God wants to radically transform people, history, and land starting from the world of the poor, and how priests and churches in El Salvador who embraced his theology were persecuted. Colón-Emeric is author of "Óscar Romero’s Theological Vision: Liberation and the Transfiguration of the Poor" (University of Notre Dame Press, 2018).

His talk is sponsored by the McFarland Center for Religion, Ethics and Culture and one of its Deitchman Family Lectures on Religion and Modernity.
