Pew Faith & Learning Lecture to
Examine "Scholarship and Commitment"

Posted January 15, 2001

HOLLAND -- Eleonore Stump of the Saint Louis University faculty will present the address "Scholarship and Commitment" on Thursday, Jan. 18, at 11 a.m. at Hope College in the Maas Center auditorium as the annual Pew Faith and Learning Lecture.

The public is invited. Admission is free.

Since 1992, Stump has been the Robert Henle Professor of Philosophy at Saint Louis University. Previously she taught at Cornell University and Virginia Polytechnic University.

Stump earned advanced degrees from Harvard and Cornell universities, and has held a number of prestigious fellowships, including the Danforth, Mellon, National Endowment for the Humanities, Lilly and Pew.

She has published 14 books on medieval philosophy and other topics, as well as 86 articles in scholarly journals and collections of essays. She is currently at work on a book project titled "The Knowledge of Suffering: Narrative and the Problem of Evil."

Her service to the profession includes past presidencies of the Society of Christian Philosophers and the American Catholic Philosophical Society, the executive committees of seven scholarly journals and the editorship of the Yale Library of Medieval Philosophy.

The Pew Faith and Learning Lecture is being sponsored by the Hope College Pew Society. Established in 1997, the society exists to encourage Hope students to pursue careers in college and university teaching as Christian service. Hope's program is part of a larger national effort, the Pew Younger Scholars Program, which supports students personally and financially as they undertake graduate education and introduces them to senior Christian scholars through workshops and conferences.
