Younger Than Sin: Retrieving Simplicity Through the Virtues of Humility, Wonder & Joy

The Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture is proud to announce our 11th annual flagship fall conference, Younger than Sin: Retrieving Simplicity through the Virtues of Humility, Wonder & Joy. Scholars, artists, professionals, laymen and students will gather November 18-20th, 2010 in McKenna Hall to reflect on the cultivation of virtue for authentic Christian freedom. Taking Pope Benedict XVI’s notion of simplicity of soul as the wellspring of humility, wonder and joy as its theme, the conference seeks to explore virtue’s contribution to human flourishing through the lenses of philosophy, theology, literature, art, law, history and other perspectives of intellectual inquiry.
