DVD on Franciscan Theology and Philosophy Available - 6/26/2008

In March of 2007, Fr. Kenan Osborne, OFM gave a talk at Marian College entitled “Franciscan Theology and Philosophy: Its Contemporary Value.” Now, Marian College alumni and friends can order a DVD of this talk at no charge.

In the last 50 years, there has been major interest in both philosophers and theologians of the Franciscan intellectual tradition. The 90-minute talk provides a sweeping overview of the tradition and how it might help the Roman Catholic Church overcome contemporary challenges.

Fr. Osborne is a well-known theologian who specializes in the Franciscan intellectual tradition. He is author of The Franciscan Intellectual Tradition: Tracing Its Origins and Identifying Its Central Components, and he is currently professor emeritus of systematic theology at the Franciscan School of Theology in Berkeley, California.

Interested alumni and friends can request a copy of the DVD by filling out the online request form. For more information, contact the Office of Alumni Affairs at
