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, Mantrama├▒jari, 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.
