Speaker: Paul Kollman, CSC
North Africa was one of the “heartlands” of Christianity during its first six centuries. Today, the continent is again one of the most vital places of growth in the Catholic Church. What connections exist between Africa’s centrality to the Church in the past and its present and future importance? And what does its growing role mean for the Church on a global level?
Rev. Paul Kollman is associate professor of theology and executive director of the
Center for Social Concerns at the University of Notre Dame. His research focuses on world
Christianity, mission history, and African Christianity.
