    Join Michael Ossorgin on the Russian Question with renowned scholar and theologian Terrence Tilley to discuss his book The Karamazov Case: Dostoevsky’s Argument for His Vision. Tilley’s book uncovers the polyphonic novel’s hidden layers, revealing religious, philosophical, and social insights. Tilley’s book transcends traditional approaches, offering a deeper understanding of unity, hope, and sacramental themes.

    Fordham's ongoing TR project – "Taking Responsibility: Jesuit Educational Institutions Confront the Causes and Legacy of Clergy Sexual Abuse" – is sponsoring two webinars this spring

    We hope you will consider joining us for one or both. Details below.


    Part I: Memorializing Clergy Sexual Abuse-- March 18, 12pm-1:30pm ET

    An interdisciplinary conversation about ethics, means, and the meanings of public memorials related to clergy sexual abuse.

    In this webinar, three scholars will explore questions about whether, when, and how communities can contend–together, as communities–with the history and memory of the Roman Catholic clergy sex abuse crisis. With expertise in trauma studies, liturgy, theology, and history, our panelists ask about the ethics, means, and meanings of various efforts to remember clergy sex abuse, as well as those who suffered and defied it. 


    Part II: Whose Stories Are They? Catholic Sex Abuse Records and the Issue of Transparency-- April 10, 4:30pm-6pm ET

    Springing from a recent legal settlement that promised an Abuse Documents Archive in the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, this webinar asks questions about the meanings, limits, and promise of “transparency” in the effort to understand and ameliorate the Catholic clergy abuse crisis. 

    What is to be learned, gained, and achieved in opening up the archives of Catholic sex abuse? What kind of healing follows from transparency, if any? Beyond respecting the wishes of survivors who prefer privacy, are there any other limitations to consider? What does transparency have to do with Catholic theology or with the practices and disciplines of Catholic experience? 

    Join us as four experts–an archivist, a canon lawyer, a survivors' attorney, and an historian–tackle these and related questions.


    Free and open to the public. Registration is required.

    For additional information, please contact takingresponsibility@fordham.edu 

    Co-sponsored by the Department of Theology, Fordham and the Curran Center for American Catholic Studies.

    The CTSA remembers and prays for longstanding member M. Theresa Moser, RSCJ, who died early this morning, Friday, February 9.  Theresa served as the CTSA Secretary from 2004 - 2013, and as interim secretary in 2018.

    Eternal rest grant unto Theresa, O Lord,
    and let perpetual light shine upon her.
    May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
    through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen

    Funeral arrangements are pending.

You can register now! (follow the link above).

The course will be offered simultaneously in seven languages, without cost and asynchronously. The previous two MOOCs on synodality developed by this team engaged more than 100,000 people in all continents. 

    Instructors/Speakers include Card. Jean-Claude Hollerich SJ, Timothy Radcliffe, OP, Piero Coda, Arturo Sosa, SJ, James Keenan, SJ, Gilles Routhier, Rafael Luciani, Alphonse Borras, Nathalie Becquart, XMCJ, Catherine Clifford, Hosffman Ospino, Serena Noceti, Phyllis Zagano, Dario Vitali, César Kuzma, Maria Cimperman, RSCJ, Agbonkhianmeghe E. Orobator, SJ, Carlos Schickendantz, Myriam Wijlens, Agenor Brighenti, among several others.
