To be held at Loyola University, Baltimore, Maryland
June 10, 2013, 7 pm through June 12, 2013, noon
The final end of humanity and the universe is a subject of perennial interest, especially for Christians. What are we promised? How does that promised end relate to history? Will anyone finally be left out of God’s intentions to bless humanity? What sort of transformation will be needed to enter the presence of God? These questions have been at the heart of Christian teachings about last things. The 2013 Pro Ecclesia conference of the Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology will focus on the theme “Heaven, Hell, . . . and Purgatory?” Topics will be examined from a variety of perspectives, representing a variety of Christian traditions.
