  • Information


Faith and Freedom is a collection of essays marking the twenty-fifth anniversary of Ex Corde Ecclesiae.

Bishops, theologians, canon lawyers, and university presidents offer speculative and practical reflections on the relationship between the Catholic university and the Church, the place of faith and revelation in the life of a university, the meaning and limits of academic freedom, the mission of the Catholic university to the wider culture, and the purpose and application of the canon laws bearing on Catholic universities.

In addition, the volume offers practical guidance and suggestions for how Catholic universities can retrieve and maintain their Catholic identity.

Included also are the stories of three Catholic universities that have self-consciously striven to implement Ex Corde Ecclesiae: Walsh University, the University of Mary, and Franciscan University of Steubenville.
