Henri Madelin SJ: Reading Teilhard de Chardin in times of crisis – The noosphere

Christian presence, signs of hope
Lunchtime Conferences at the Chapel of the Resurrection 2011/12

Teilhard de Chardin SJ is more relevant than ever in these times of crisis and gloom: He searched through the remains of the past of our planet, while committing his vision as a scholar and mystic to the future of humanity. For this Jesuit, human beings were "the arrow of evolution", an evolution in which Christ himself is inserted through the Incarnation. Humanity is on the march, not without violence, at the heart of a "noosphere", to a unity of differences, founded on a heightening of consciousness moving towards an "Omega Point".

Henri Madelin, born in 1936, is a member of the French Province of the Society of Jesus. He is a graduate of the Theological Faculty of Lyon and the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris, he holds a doctorate in political science. From 1979 to 1985 he was Jesuit Provincial of France, then editor of the journal Etvdes. From 1985 to 1991 he was president of the Centre Sèvres in Paris. Since 1971, Henri Madelin has been a lecturer and teacher at the Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris. Since 2006, he also represents the Holy See to the Council of Europe in Strasbourg. In his scientific research, Henri Madelin has focused on Teilhard de Chardin. Other fields of his research are the relationship between religions and the modern state, or secularism and the future of Europe.


Christian Presence, Signs of the Resurrection is a public lecture series hosted by the Chapelle de la Résurrection in cooperation with the Jesuit European Social Centre.
