Emmaus Road Initiative – Part 3

What is happening in history?

History and Hope

What is history? When does history begin? We live in a time of extraordinary material improvements – however unequally enjoyed and fraught with unanticipated consequences. Nonetheless, someone as astute as Henri de Lubac can assert that we live in a time of “deliberate barbarism” precisely to the degree that we are guilty of the “deliberate refusal of history.” In this session of the E.R.I. Gil Bailie explores the challenge implicit in de Lubac’s critique and reflect on the nature and meaning of human history.
