Waite Chair Lecture to look at interreligious crossovers of humans as the image of God

An interreligious meditation on humanity’s creation in the image of God will be the subject of the March 26 annual Waite Chair Lecture at Creighton University.

March 26 at 4 p.m., the new holder of Creighton’s Waite Chair in Jesuit Education, the Rev. Henry D’Almeida, SJ, PhD, a professor of philosophy at Jnana-Deepa Vidyapeeth, a Pontifical Athanaeum of Philosophy and Religion, will deliver the lecture, titled “Human Being as the Image of God: A Christian Appreciation of Madhva’s Interpretation of the Great Scriptural Statement: That-thou-art (tat-tvam-asi).”

The lecture will take place in Room 3028 of the Harper Center. A reception will immediately follow the lecture.

Fr. D’Almeida holds a doctorate from the University of Pune in India.

The Waite Chair in Jesuit Education was established in 2011 by Donald Waite, BSC’54, and his wife, Anna, to augment the Jesuit presence on the Creighton campus. The Waite Chair sponsors visiting Jesuits who pursue writing, research and teaching on law, philosophy, business ethics, health care and more, opening doors for learning across international borders and cultural divides.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
