The Centre for Philosophy & Phenomenology of Religion (Australian Catholic University)
invites you to:

Prof. Falque will present a seminar paper on “Toward a Philosophy of the Eucharist”

Abstract: The description of philosophical experiences is always the source for the renewal of theological dogmas. The gift of “this is my
body” in the Eucharist will neither be heard in this sense nor understood independently of the gift of bodies between spouses or of a valid
consideration of the density of our own bodies today. Since “all that is not assumed is not saved,” the Eucharist joins the chaos of our humanity
– even our animality – in order to incorporate and transform it in the Triune God.
