What are the paradoxes of Lived Catholicism and how can it be authentically prophetic? An online conference
Introducing Lived Catholicism
In autumn 2020 scholars from a range of disciplines came together from around the world to explore a distinctive new field of study which we termed ‘Lived Catholicism’.
With papers from Australia to Latin America via inter-faith marriages in Mumbai, residual Catholicism among student teachers in Ireland, and women leaders in Ghana, we explored Catholicism as lived across time and space.
Through this breadth of scholarship it became clear that Lived Catholicism is more than a subset of Lived Religion, posing many generative questions about the nature of Catholicism itself, for example the tensions between institution and individual experience; the manifold ways in which power is held and used; and the relationship between theology and the lived.
