Grace & Nature: Contemporary Controversies

Grace & Nature: Contemporary Controversies

3-4 December 2021

Location: Angelicum – Aula Minor

Also live-streamed on YouTube

What is the relationship between nature and grace in Catholic thought? What relevance do traditional controversies about natural and supernatural have for theology today?
