Registration Open for Religious Liberty Conference in Norcia

Registration is now open for the Colloquium on Dignitatis Humanæ to be held in Norcia, October 30th—November 1st. As  we reported in March, Cardinal Burke will be in attendance. The Colloquium is being organized by the newly formed Dialogos Institute, for the study of the patristic heritage in the spirit of Latin and Byzantine Thomism. The Institute describes the purpose of the Colloquium as follows:

December 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the most controversial document of the Second Vatican Council, the 'Declaration on Religious Freedom', Dignitatis Humanae. Ever since its promulgation, it has been the subject of prolonged and often impassioned debate. What precisely does it teach? What is its authority? How can it be reconciled with the Church's teaching about the kingship of Christ and the duties of Catholic statesmen? Scholars from all over the world will be meeting in Norcia this autumn, in the presence of Cardinal Raymond Burke, to discuss these vital questions.
