Debat: "2018 McDermott Lectureship: Austen Ivereigh, Ross Douthat and John Allen Jr.."

28. jan. 2018

View our University of Dallas webcast of the 2018 McDermott Lectureship. Recorded LIVE on Wednesday, January 24, 2018, the discussion features three of the most prominent voices in Catholic journalism - Austen Ivereigh (Crux: Taking the Catholic Pulse), Ross Douthat (The New York Times), and John Allen Jr. (Crux).

Douthat and Ivereigh showed us how to disagree without being disagreeable

 It’s the nature of my gig that I go to a lot of events - conferences, panels, symposia, plenary assemblies, you name it, I’ve been there. Often you learn something, other times you make a new contact, but few of those outings truly qualify as memorable.

Wednesday night in Dallas was the exception that proved the rule.

That night, I moderated a remarkable event hosted by the University of Dallas featuring two of the smartest, best-informed, and most articulate Catholic commentators alive - Ross Douthat of the New York Times and author of the forthcoming To Change the Church: Pope Francis and the Future of Catholicism; and Austen Ivereigh, author of The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope and a Crux contributor.

Anyone who knows the lay of the land in English-speaking Catholicism today will immediately recognize Ivereigh as a leading supporter of Pope Francis, and Douthat as perhaps his most trenchant critic. As a result, the forecast Wednesday was for fireworks, and indeed there was plenty of lively disagreement, captured in a superb write-up by Crux’s national correspondent Chris White.
