Marian faith

Here is a stimulating lecture on the doctrine of faith from one of my former professors, Francesca Murphy, Professor of Theology at Notre Dame (formerly Professor of Christian Philosophy at Aberdeen).

This a profound theological reflection on the question, what is faith? And it is nice to see a theologian answer this question, instead of handing it over to the philosophers. The intersection of theology and philosophy has been one of Professor Murphy’s longtime interests, as exemplified in her Catholic heroes, Étienne Gilson and Hans Urs von Balthasar, not to mention Augustine and Thomas.

On that note, you should purchase The Catholicity of Reason by D. C. Schindler in Eerdman’s series on Ressourcement.
