Heythrop College will be hosting 'Christic Self-Consciousness for Today' - an event to mark the centenary of the birth of Raimon Panikkar, on Tuesday 16th January at 4.30pm.
Raimon Panikkar, son of a Spanish mother and an Indian father, lived in the midst of many cultures and religions, from India to California, in a house on the banks of the Ganges and in his native village of Tavertet in the Pyrenees, where he died a few years ago. With work that ranges from the celebrated The Unknown Christ of Hinduism to the magnificent collection of Vedic literature, Mantramañjari, he remains one of the most prolific and influential theologians of our age.
This celebration of the life and work of a remarkable man will include the launch of his Opera Omnia, the new collected edition of his work, by the editor, Milena Pavan; a film of one of the last interviews Panikkar gave before his death, introduced by film-maker Andrea Andriotto; plus contributions and discussion led by Professor Michael Barnes SJ, Professor Ursula King and the Rt Reverend Michael Ipgrave.
There will be light refreshments - and a souvenir booklet of some of Panikkar's most memorable thoughts.
