Humanae Vitae - 50 Years On:

Towards a Deeper Understanding

A Public Lecture by

Rev. Professor Gilfredo Marengo,

(John Paul II Institute for Marriage & Family Studies, Rome)



Humanae Vitae Public Lecture


To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Pope Paul VI's encyclical Humanae Vitae, Maryvale was delighted to welcome back Reverend Professor Gilfredo Marengo as guest speaker in his 3rd public lecture with us. The lecture, entitled Humanae Vitae - 50 Years On: Towards a Deeper Understanding. Insights from the work of the commission to study the history of the drafting of the encyclical was received well by all who attended and prompted a lively question and answer session.

Professor Marengo, who is also a Lecturer on the Maryvale MA in Catholic Applied Theology programme, was visiting us from the John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family in Rome, where he is Professor of Theological Anthropology. His previous public lectures at Maryvale, which are available to stream from this website, covered The Joy of Love and The Task of the New Evangelisation.
