The Institute for Saint Anselm Studies hosted the Sixth Saint Anselm Conference on April 20-22, 2017. The Conference theme was Saint Anselm, the Church, and the Reformers.

Marking the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, the Sixth Saint Anselm Conference welcomed papers on topics that were important to Anselm and the Reformers alike. Areas included issues in theology, such as Christ, redemption, free will and grace, the place of scripture in the Church, the nature of the Church, authority and reform in the Church, and also broader issues such as the value of reason, the reception of Anselm among the humanists, and the relations between Church and individual, Church and state authority, conscience and authority, conscience and civil law.

Plenary Speaker:
Rev. David Pignato, J.D., S.T.D., Professor, Systematic Theology
St. John's Seminary, Boston

The Saint Anselm Lecture by Rev. Pignato was held on Friday evening, with Panel sessions held on Friday and Saturday. Selected papers will be published in The Saint Anselm Journal.
