Paul as Liturgical Theologian

From June 28, 2008 to June 29, 2009 the Church will be celebrating a Jubilee Year in honor of the apostle Paul, to commemorate the bimellenium of his birth. As its contribution to this commemoration, the Notre Dame Center for Liturgy is dedicating its 2009 conference to exploring "Paul as Liturgical Theologian."

Presentations will consider Paul's teachings on Christian worship and liturgy, and how the Church community's worship serves as matrix for his theology.
