The occasion of the 50th Cardinal Bea Memorial Lecture provides an opportunity to celebrate the memory of this remarkable scripture scholar and man of the Church who did so much to shape the direction of the Second Vatican Council. As well as calling to mind his many achievements, especially in the sphere of Jewish-Christian relations, this lecture looks to the next fifty years. What would Cardinal Bea say about where we are now? And where would he like us to be in 2070?

Professor Michael Barnes is a Jesuit priest who has been involved in interreligious relations for many years. His latest book, “Waiting on Grace, a Theology of Dialogue”, puts the experience of being called into life by a compassionate and loving God at the heart of Christian faith.

Jonathan Gosky  is a former lecturer in Christian Jewish Relations at Heythrop College, London.  He is now the Jewish Scholar in Residence at the Sion Centre for Dialogue & Encounter

Sister Teresa Brittain, is a sister of Our Lady of Sion presently living in Manchester. She works in the Department of Dialogue in the Salford Diocese, working in Jewish Christian relations. Also teaches Scripture with adult groups and works in retreat and pastoral work.
