Buttiglione to speak at Franciscan

STEUBENVILLE - Rocco Buttiglione, an Italian philosopher and Catholic statesman, will speak at Franciscan University of Steubenville on Monday.

Buttiglione's talk, "My Friendship With a Saint: What Blessed John Paul II Taught Me About Christian Witness," will be given at 7 p.m. in the Tony and Nina Gentile Gallery of the J.C. Williams Center. He will focus on Pope John Paul II's understanding of Christian witness, drawing on his vantage point as friend, trusted adviser and spiritual son, according to officials.

The lecture is sponsored by the Dietrich von Hildebrand Legacy Project.

Buttiglione previously served as Italian Minister for European Affairs and then as Italian Minister for Cultural Assets and Activities.

Buttiglione also will deliver the philosophy department's annual Edith Stein Lecture on the topic: "Beyond Descartes: Intersubjectivity as Ground of Knowledge of the Self." That lecture will take place at 4 p.m. Wednesday in the Tony and Nina Gentile Gallery.

Both lectures are free and open to the public.
