The Killeen Chair of Theology and Philosophy Lecture Series

From alien invasions to climatic disasters, deadly plagues, and zombie hordes, visions of apocalypse seem nearly omnipresent in both our fiction and our predictions for the future. This cultural zeitgeist demands critical reflection: How do our current fascinations with the end of civilization compare to other apocalyptic movements throughout history? Are these expectations of a bleak future warranted? If so, what are the appropriate ethics and theologies for our world’s last days? These questions are close to the heart of St. Norbert College’s mission to dialogue with diverse perspectives and beliefs, promote a Gospel vision of justice, and to respond to global needs after the model of St. Norbert.
