Creative Giver of Life: An Ecological Theology of the Holy Spirit

Creative Giver of Life: An Ecological Theology of the Holy Spirit will be the theme explored at the fourth annual Holy Spirit Lecture and Colloquium by guest speaker Dr. Elizabeth A. Johnson, C.S.J., Distinguished Professor of Theology at Fordham University. Her lecture is free and open to the public.

“Dr. Johnson is widely regarded as among the top flight of systematic and feminist theologians, and she is among an even more select few who treat the role of the holy spirit in a sustained manner in their reflections,” said Dr. William M. Thompson-Uberuaga, professor of systematic theology at Duquesne.

Johnson, who is also a member of the Sisters of St. Joseph order, specializes in systematic theology, feminist theology and ecological theology. Her primary research areas focus on the mystery of God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit; the communion of saints including Mary; the dialogue with science and ecological ethics; the problem of suffering; and issues related to justice for women.

Designed to develop the intellectual spirit, the Holy Spirit Lecture and Colloquium was initiated in 2005 by Duquesne University President Charles J. Dougherty as an expression of Duquesne’s mission and charism as a university founded by the congregation of the Holy Spirit and dedicated to the Holy Spirit.
