Decision-making in an Uncertain Time. Should you always obey your conscience?

Friday June 10th, 2022


The idea for this colloquium was prompted by the publication of Conscience: Writings from Moral Theology by St Alphonsus (Liguori Publications, 2019), transl. Raphael Gallagher CSsR. The issue of good moral decision-making, a perennial challenge, is particularly acute in today’s world where there is an exponential growth of uncertainties and doubts. We are continuously confronted by complex personal and societal dilemmas.  This event will explore different ways of moral decision-making from historical, theological and legal perspectives.

Speakers include:

    Prof. Cornelius Casey CSsR, Trinity College Dublin
    Prof. Raphael Gallagher CSsR, Alphonsianum, Rome
    Prof. Patrick Hannon, St Patrick’s College, Maynooth
    Prof. Stefania Tutino, University of California (UCLA)
    Prof. Desmond Ryan, Trinity College Dublin
    Prof. Fáinche Ryan, Trinity College Dublin


The Conference will be held in the Loyola Institute, (G16), Trinity College Dublin.
