Forum examines Catholicism and the arts

The 2018–19 Notre Dame Forum, “The Catholic Artistic Heritage: Bringing Forth Treasures New and Old,” was inspired by the New Testament parable that compares the Kingdom of Heaven to the owner of a household who shares treasures both ancient and current. Among the forum’s speakers were the Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist Marilynne Robinson, renowned theologian and former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, and the acclaimed filmmaker Wim Wenders, who screened his newest documentary, Pope Francis: A Man of His Word.
