Title: On Church Fathers and Canonical Traditions

Abstract: After defining the secularization thesis, exploring the way Charles Taylor has shifted the trajectory of that theory, interjecting Mary Eberstadt's "Family Factor" into the narrative of secularization, and briefly discussing the role of beauty in a secular age, this second presentation for our Fall Table Talk Series—"For the Life of a Secular Age"—will examine two Christian proposals that have been put forth in the twentieth century as responses to our secular age. We will argue that Fr. Georges Florovsky's "Neo-Patristic Synthesis" and William Abraham's "Canonical Theism" complement Charles Taylor's emphasis on poetics and saints as the way forward for the Church.
