(p.1) Introduction
In the Lógos of Love

James L. Heft

Una M. Cadegan

Oxford University Press

This introduction describes the thinking and process behind the “in the lógos of love” conference held in September 2013, cosponsored by the University of Dayton and the Institute for Advanced Catholic Studies, exploring the current challenges and future possibilities of Catholic intellectual life. It identifies a number of factors, both positive and negative, that form the recent history and current context for intellectual work informed by Catholic tradition. It then briefly summarizes each of the nine essays included in the volume, along with a short description of possible audiences and uses for the essays, especially in faculty development at Catholic universities. It concludes with a short reflection on the themes of the originating conference’s keynote address, given by Richard Rodriguez.
