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 full title was Note on Some Possible Historical Representations of Original Sin and you will find it in this book, along with other important essays dating from c.1920 to 1953.
