Learning to Love the Whole
with
 Ilia Delio, OSF



The separation of science and religion as independent domains of knowledge has contributed to the fragmentation of the world. The Church has played a key role in this separation, although the core doctrine of Christian faith is incarnation--wholeness and union. Here we will explore Teilhard de Chardin's insights on the God of evolution and the meaning of Christogenesis in a world that seeks its completion and wholeness up ahead.



Ilia Delio, OSF, PhD is a Franciscan Sister of Washington, DC and American theologian specializing in science and religion, with interests in evolution, physics and neuroscience and the import of these for theology. Ilia currently holds the Josephine C. Connelly Endowed Chair in Theology at Villanova University. Her area of research is Science and Religion with interests in artificial intelligence, evolution, quantum physics and the import of these for Christian doctrine and life. She holds a doctorate in Pharmacology from Rutgers University, Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and a doctorate in Historical Theology from Fordham University. She is the author of twenty books including Making All Things New: Catholicity, Cosmology and Consciousness and The Unbearable Wholeness of Being: God, Evolution and the Power of Love, for which she won the 2014 Silver Nautilus Book Award and a 2014 Catholic Press Association Book Award in Faith and Science, Birth of a Dancing Star, recounts her spiritual journey into a new vision of the universe. Her latest book, The Primacy of Love centralizes love as the core reality of all cosmic life.
