Fr. Schall's last lecture: "The Final Gladness"

The legendary Father James Schall, SJ delivers his last lecture entitled, "The Final Gladness" before retiring from teaching at Georgetown University.

Sponsored by the Tocqueville Forum on the Roots of American Democracy in collaboration with the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs.

Father James V. Schall, S.J. was Professor of Government at Georgetown University. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1948 and was ordained a Roman Catholic priest in 1963. After obtaining his Ph.D. in political philosophy from Georgetown in 1960, he taught there for 34 years before retiring in 2012. He is the author of over thirty books, including Another Sort of Learning and The Modern Age.

[Blogger's note: Although I'm certain for a priest as prolific as Fr. Schall, he'll still be publishing an essay, or two, or twenty. "Retirement" simply affords more time to read and write].
