The Catholic chaplain at Edinburgh university will chair an event next week on The Future of Christian Ethics.

Father John O'Connor, a Dominican, will welcome Anglican priest Professor Robin Gill who will consider three of the existing tensions within Christian ethics that promise to be influential in shaping the future of the discipline.

These are tensions between emerging technology and Christian ethics; tensions between secular humanism and Christian ethics; and tensions between other faith traditions and Christian ethics.

He will examine the existing fruitful dialogue in each of these areas, and suggest some future directions they might take.

Professor Gill is the Emeritus Professor of Applied Theology at the University of Kent. The Anglican priest has extensively published in sociology, theology, and religious and health care ethics.

This event is hosted by the Albertus Institute for Science, Knowledge and Religion, and is co-sponsored by CTPI.
