Event description

Description

In 1925 the controversial Jesuit priest and scientist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin was ordered to sign “The Six Propositions”. This Vatican document contained highly conservative teachings on original sin and human origins. Until now its content has been secret. The document will be made public for the first time and the issues surrounding it will be presented with interpretation and discussion. Inquisition dramatizes Teilhard’s dilemma: forced to believe in either the Bible or science.
