Project Description

Rhodora Beaton, Assistance Professor of Theology, was awarded $28,900 for Human Distinctiveness: A Program to Engage Theologians with the Dynamism of Anthropological and Evolutionary Approaches to the Human. During her two-semester sabbatical in academic year 2015-2016, she began work on the development of an embodied theology of revelation, situated in the Roman Catholic tradition, and holding the experiences of women at the center. Her publication goals for the sabbatical included two peer-reviewed articles and a book proposal. In addition to these specific publications, she hoped that the summer seminar will provide her with tools for developing a theological method which integrates the discoveries of evolutionary anthropology with the Catholic theological tradition on divine revelation. This method will serve to shed additional light on questions of human purpose in the world and the ultimate reality which is revealed to us through divine revelation and the sacraments. She intended to develop and apply this method in her 2015-2016 articles and conference presentations and to use it as a foundation for the book project.
