Mary–Yesterday and Today

Our sixth forum has taken stock of how Marian theology and spirituality have evolved since the middle of the last century. Then, we proposed areas of research that capitalize on the emerging developments in theology and culture and serve the spiritual needs of Christian peoples around the world.

On April 6, 2018, the forum began promptly via teleconference at 2:30 p.m. Eastern time (United States). After a brief introduction, each presenter gave a 20-minute presentation. The session concluded with an hour of open discussion and final remarks at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time.
