TIC Theological Lecture Series, Lecture 1: “The Act of Faith and the Motives of Credibility”
Dr. Fulvio Di Blasi, Director of the Thomas International Center
343 E Six Forks Road, Suite 130, Raleigh, NC 27609
In preparation for making our first video courses available online in January, Fulvio Di Blasi will lead a series of six lectures for our supporters spanning central theological topics. The first of these will focus on “The Act of Faith and the Motives of Credibility.”
The very term “Christian faith” is defined by these two words “Christian” and “faith,” but what does the second mean exactly? Catholic traditional doctrine teaches that our faith is a grace and a human act, that it is a free form of knowledge, that it is a virtue, and that it is necessary to salvation. What do all these features mean? This lecture aims at clarifying the notion of faith and its features, starting with its human meaning related to our ordinary way to know the truth.
DR. FULVIO DI BLASI IS AN INTERNATIONALLY RENOWNED SCHOLAR IN THE FIELD OF MORAL PHILOSOPHY, NATURAL LAW THEORY, AND THOMISTIC PHILOSOPHY. HE IS FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT OF THE THOMAS INTERNATIONAL PROJECT, PRESIDENT OF THE THOMAS INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION IN ITALY, AND DIRECTOR OF THE THOMAS INTERNATIONAL CENTER IN RALEIGH, NC.
