The Thought of Teilhard, Part 1

Bishop Christopher Coyne (Auxiliary Bishop, Archdiocese of Indianapolis) begins a 4-part podcast on the thought of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, SJ with Father Mark Hunt (Holy Family University, Philadelphia). Father Mark has studied Teilhard for over 30 years and teaches a course at Holy Family University on Teilhard’s thought. This podcast series was prompted by comments posted to Bishop Coyne’s blog concerning a prayer for hope authored by Teilhard. The first 2 podcasts will examine Teilhard’s life, which many contend is crucial to understand not only the person Teilhard, but his thought as well. On this note, Bishop Coyne and Father Mark express sincere thanks to Professors Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim (Yale University) who authored a biography on Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. They have given their permission for the biography to be used in these podcasts. The biography is posted on the American Teilhard Society’s webpage. The society’s webpage contains valuable resources to learn more about Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and the society’s activities including the annual meeting of the society in New York. This podcast examines Teilhard’s “Formative Years.”  (Bishop Coyne apologizes profusely for the times he butchers the names of French people and places.)
