Center for Carmelite Studies

First Annual Lecture in Carmelite Studies

 Professor Keith Egan, Ph.D. T.O.Carm. attracted a wide and very  appreciative audience to the First Annual Lecture in Carmelite Studies. In a very scholarly and profound way he approached the question: What Makes a Carmelite a Carmelite? An Evolving and Dynamic Charism. Dr Egan’s lecture explored aspects of Carmel’s original charism, and illustrated so comprehensively how this dynamic charism shaped Carmelite identity from their origins as hermits on Mount Carmel, and as it continued to evolve with their migration to Europe eventually embracing the mendicant movement .
