Seminar 2:
The Gospel of Creation:
A Biblical Response to
Laudato Si

In Rome in 2015, The Institute for Religion and Critial Inquiry held its first major seminar Laudato Si: The Greening of the Church? The seminar brought together leading international eco-theologians, Biblical scholars, ecological ethicists, and moral theologians, to explore the strengths, weaknesses and implications of Pope Francis's encyclical on the environment from a variety of ecclesial and academic perspectives. Professor Moloney presented a biblical response and we are privileged to have him give two biblical perspectives on this vitally important subject at St Peter's.
