Eschatology and Moral Order

Adoration of the Lamb

A Joint University of Chicago and University of Notre Dame Graduate Student Conference

University of Chicago Divinity School, Swift Hall
March 31st –April 1st, 2014


From apocalyptic visions of the prophets of Israel, to the proclamation of Jesus and the early church that the Kingdom had come, up to the recovery of eschatology in 20th century theology and the contemporary focus on apocalyptic as a fundamental category in theology, eschatology has become a dominant concern in our current theological landscape.  In this conference we will explore the ways, both historically and at present, eschatology shapes and determines the various aspects of the moral life in both conceptual and practical spheres.  In the spirit of past joint student conferences between Notre Dame and University of Chicago Divinity students, we seek to bring together graduate students in the areas of ethics, theology, and other related fields to submit papers addressing the relationship and importance of eschatology for moral order.
