Faith and History Lecture


In Fall 2010, the Department of History inaugurated a new annual lecture series devoted to the theme of faith and history.  John Fea of the history department delivered the inaugural lecture titled “The Power to Transform: A Christian Reflection on the Study of the Past.”


Dr. Fea's talk explored the subject of how Christians approach the study of the past, and was based on his recent work on the subject of faith and history in an edited volume titledĀ Confessing History: Explorations in Christian Faith and the Historian’s VocationĀ (University of Notre Dame Press, 2010).
