Santa Clara Lecture

In 1994, through the generosity of Bannan Institute of the Ignatian Center for Jesuit Education, the Department of Religious Studies of Santa Clara University inaugurated the Santa Clara Lectures.

This series brings to campus leading scholars in theology, offering the University community and the general public an ongoing exposure to debate on the most significant issues of our times. Santa Clara University publishes these lectures and distributes them throughout the United States and internationally.
