The Cathedral Forum: Things Hidden since the Foundation of the World: The Theology of René Girard

In this Forum, parishioner Bill Tompson explores the thought of French historian, literary critic, philosopher and theologian René Girard. How did a secular, agnostic French literary critic become not just a Christian but one of the most influential theologians of the late 20th Century? The Forum also explores how and why Girard’s insights into the role of the “scapegoat mechanism” in human communities may be particularly relevant today.
