“Beauty Will Save The World” – Pentecost Lectures


The 2019 Pluscarden Pentecost Lectures will be held between 11 – 13 June, titled “Beauty Will Save The World” – A theological and pastoral reflection on the role of beauty in the life of the Church. The series will consist of four talks by Father Martin Boland.

The beauty of the Catholic Church serves to make real the truth of the Incarnation and the mysteries of faith in every age and time through its liturgy, art, doctrine and moral life. These lectures will contend that without beauty, the Church becomes less attractive and the good news of God’s grace is expressed with less clarity and conviction. When the beauty of the Church is celebrated, men and women will develop a deeper appreciation of the transcendence of the Triune God.

  • Tuesday 11 June at 15:00 – The problem of beauty in the contemporary mind
  • Wednesday 12 June at 10:30 – Retrieving beauty
  • Wednesday 12 June at 15:00 – The Incarnation as the revelation of Beauty Itself
  • Thursday 13 June at 10:30 – Celebrating beauty in the life of the Church
