THURSDAY 22 FEBRUARY 2018 – SIX PROPOSITIONS DAY – A TEILHARD CONFERENCE AND A PLAY ABOUT TEILHARD AT EDINBURGH UNIVERSITY
Sunday, February 11, 2018
TEILHARD’S MISSING “SIX PROPOSITIONS” FOUND! In 1925 the controversial Jesuit priest and scientist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin was ordered to assent to Six Propositions. They included rigidly conservative teachings on Original Sin, and on Adam and Eve. Until now their content has been unknown but this will be made public for the first time at the University of Edinburgh. The surrounding issues will be presented with interpretation and discussion.
The day will include professional actors performing a staged reading of Inquisition, a new play by Paul Bentley which dramatizes Teilhard’s dilemma when faced with the Six Propositions: forced to believe in either the Bible or science. (It was Paul Bentley who recently discovered the long-lost Six Propositions document in Rome – and he was the first person to see them since 1925…)
