On July 8-11, 2006, the first ever truly International Congress of Roman Catholic Ethicists occurred in Padua (see www.catholicethics.com). Four hundred Roman Catholic ethicists from all over the world met to exchange ideas, not under the aegis of the Roman Catholic Church, but under the patronage of a Dutch foundation and UNESCO. These ethicists, caught up in their own specific cultures, recognize the need to confront the challenge of pluralism; to dialogue from and beyond local cultures; and to interconnect within a world church, not dominated solely by a northern paradigm.While many of these ethicists knew of their conference colleagues by reputation and from their writings, this is the first opportunity most will have to meet face to face and engage in cross-cultural dialogue within their discipline. This book explores and discusses further the ideas sparked by this conference.
James F. Keenan, S.J., holds the Founders Professorship in Theology at Boston College where he directs the Presidential Scholars Program. An internationally renowned theological ethicist, he is the author of many books (around 18 or so) in the area of theological ethics. His most recent book is History of Catholic Moral Theology in the Twentieth Century: From Confessing Sins to Liberating Consciences (Continuum, 2010).
