Faith Seeking Understanding Lecture Series

Fides quarens intellectum, faith seeking understanding, is a venerable phrase in the Christian intellectual tradition, associated especially with Augustine of Hippo (354–430), and Anselm of Canterbury (1033–1109).

It was chosen as our lecture series title because it suggests our view at Gordon College that faith should not be a matter of self-satisfied piety and isolation from the life of culture and intellect. Rather, we should be engaged in the great issues, ideas, and debates of our day.

The speakers we invite each year seek to nurture both faith and understanding and explore the relationship between the two.
