Long before Ex Corde Ecclesiae called Catholic universities to engage the wider culture, Franciscan University of Steubenville was doing just that. For nearly 40 years, the school has welcomed visitors to its hilltop campus for summer conferences, symposia, and other events designed to form both heads and hearts in accord with the fullness of the Catholic faith.
Now, through Faith and Reason.com, Franciscan University is taking its mission to the culture one step further, inviting you and others from around the world to explore our world as you learn from the best Catholic thinkers and voices of our day.
Most important, you’re invited to do all that for free.
At Faith and Reason.com, you’ll find an ever-expanding online video library featuring engaging talks by top theologians, philosophers, scientists, statesmen, cultural critics, and more. George Weigel, Father Mitch Pacwa, SJ, Kathryn Lopez, Maggie Gallagher, Father Robert Barron, Father Benedict Groeshel, CFR, Dr. Scott Hahn, and Congressman Jeff Fortenberry are just a few of the intellectual and cultural luminaries who share their wisdom here.
From them, you’ll learn more about our Catholic faith—about the doctrines that express it, about the Scriptures that inform it, and about the Liturgy that embodies it. You’ll also learn more about the person at the heart of it all: Jesus Christ.
At the same time, you’ll also learn about our history, as both Catholics and Americans, and about the Church in the world today. You’ll learn about the cultural and ethical debates that divide us. You’ll learn about media that shapes us. And you’ll learn about the movies that move us.
From emerging issues in business and bioethics to questions of politics, art, music, and more, Faith & Reason will deepen your understanding of the world in which you live and give you the tools you need to engage the culture with truth and love.
Franciscan University of Steubenville looks forward to embarking on this journey of growth and discovery with you, as we seek the truth of Christ in the midst of the world, borne aloft on “the two wings of faith and reason.”
