Lectures on Our Lady: Part III

Part 3- Contemplative Preacher of the Word: How the Patristic vision of Mary can inform our own Dominican devotion to Our Lady

The place of Our Lord's mother in the life of the early Christian Church is often obscured in our day by the concerns of later controversies and the elusiveness of the available evidence. These talks will seek to offer an introduction to the place of the Blessed Virgin in the spiritual lives and theological visions of Christians of the first few centuries after Christ. What role did Mary play in larger theological reflections about her Son and the nature of salvation? When did Christians first begin to seek her intercession? Finally, an attempt will be made to see how this vision can add to our own understanding of Our Lady, and our own devotion to her, especially in the context of the Dominican tradition.
