The British Teilhard Network

The British Teilhard Network promotes the work and vision of the priest-scientist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin – a vision of love, of fire, of convergence, of a world in evolution energised by spirit, a vision of dynamism and direction – of a universe in movement towards its ultimate consummation or completion in a ‘universal cosmic centre’ or ‘centre of centres’.

  • Where are we heading?
  • What is the meaning of life?

Teilhard gives answers to these questions based on deep thought, reflection and mystical insight.

Are you on a quest that makes sense in our world – a world of change, a cosmos in evolution? If you are, this is the site for you.

THIS MONTH’S SUGGESTED TITLE
The Rise and Fall of ADAM & EVE by Stephen Greenblatt, Bodley Head London, 2017.
A fascinating book about the influence a few verses in Genesis have had on art, philosophy and science ever since they were written. Michelangelo, Milton and Darwin – they are all here, but not, as it happens, the famous Jesuit palaeontologist Teilhard de Chardin, even though his 1922 essay on Original Sin with its “there is no acceptable place for Adam” got him into deep trouble with the Vatican and led to his having to sign the notorious “Six Propositions”. Greenblatt’s book is a great read even so.
