Decision-making in an Uncertain Time - Should you always obey your conscience?

About this event

Loyola Institute, Trinity College Dublin, situated in the School of Religion, Theology, and Peace Studies, began its academic mission of teaching and research in theology in the Catholic Christian tradition in 2012.

The idea for this colloquium was prompted by the publication of Conscience: Writings from Moral Theology by St Alphonsus (Liguori Publications, 2019), transl. Raphael Gallagher CSsR. The issue of good moral decision-making, a perennial challenge, is particularly acute in today’s world where there is an exponential growth of uncertainties and doubts. We are continuously confronted by complex personal and societal dilemmas. This event will explore different ways of moral decision-making from historical, theological and legal perspectives.

Speakers include:

Prof Cornelius Casey CSsR, Trinity College Dublin

Prof. Raphael Gallagher CSsR, Alphonsianum, Rome

Prof Patrick Hannon, St Patrick’s College, Maynooth

Prof Stefania Tutino, University of California (UCLA)

Prof Desmond Ryan, Trinity College Dublin

Prof Fáinche Ryan, Trinity College Dublin.


The one-day only Symposium will be held in the Loyola Institute, School of Religion, Theology, and Peace Studies, Lecture Theatre G16, Trinity College Dublin.
