In light of the global pandemic, museums throught out the world have closed their physical doors.  Yet, rather than pausing their educational mission, many have opened up their collections to be explored and enjoyed digitally.  Even if you are confined within your home, you can virtually tour some of the world's top museums.

Lumen Christi Institute

Distinct in their theology, spirituality and discipline of Church life, 23 Eastern Catholic Churches are in communion with the Roman Catholic Church.  The Second Vatican Council urged the Eastern Catholic Churches to promote their unique share of the tradition.  This series responds to that mandate and features leading scholars in the field to offer their theological perspectives drawn from the wisdom of the Christian East.  In view of broadening our understanding of the Catholic intellectual tradition, this series draws attention to the vantage points of Christians who worship, think, and pray in continuity with the first 1000 years of the undivided Church.
