2008 Forum Lecture: Michelle Campagnolo Bouvier

The 2007-2008 James Luther Adams Foundation Forum on Religion and Society will be held on April 6, 2008, at 7:00 p.m. at the Emerson Unitarian Universalist Church in Houston, Texas.

The lecture will be given by Michelle Campagnolo Bouvier, Secretary General of the Société Européenne de Culture in Venice, Italy. She will discuss her own contacts with Adams as well as his significant relationships with her father, André Bouvier, and her husband, Umberto Campagnolo.

She will be setting her reflections in the wider context of Adams’s collaboration with her father in the ecumenical field and will be looking for traces of the influence of Harvard Divinity School, where Adams taught, on them. She is pleased to be drawing particular attention to Adams’s ecumenical interests, a topic that the Forum has not yet treated at length. She will discuss Adams’s influence on the ecumenical movement and particularly upon the development of the Société Européenne de Culture.
