Popes and the Papacy: A History - 9/10 through 11/26
Why did Jesus choose Peter to lead his Church on Earth? Did Peter’s authority die with him, as many Christian scholars claim, or did it extend to his successors whom we regard as popes? Notre Dame Professor Thomas F. X. Noble explores these and other questions in a new program, starting Tuesday, September 10, at 9:30 a.m. in St. Monica room. Part I of the course is a 12-week study of the beginnings of the papacy and extends through the Renaissance period on November 26. Professor Noble brings the keen eye of a noted historian to consider the issues and some of the notable occupants of the Chair of Peter. His insights will broaden our perspectives about the role of Popes and the Papacy in the Catholic Church. Mike Brown will facilitate the discussions.  Click here to view the class schedule.
