The CCS has created a large collection of recent talks, some of which are available as videos and others of which are available as audios. The audios can be accessed via Soundcloud, Apple Podcasts and Spotify, and the videos are available via the CCS’s YouTube channel.
In 2019, the CCS hosted the Franciscan Legacy conference, bringing together members of the Franciscan family, theologians, historians, and others to explore the continuing significance of St Francis and Franciscan traditions. Audios from the conference are available on Soundcloud, including talks by Ilia Delio, Mona Siddiqui, and John McCafferty. Some of the other papers are available as pdfs – the full programme is here and if you would like to a request a paper, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
