Is There One True Religion, or Are There Many?
Speaker(s):  Hans Kung, Leroy S. Rouner
Date of Recording:  10/8/1986

Description:   This is a presentation at Boston University. After Kung speaks, there is a response by Dr. Leroy S. Rouner of the Boston University Intitute for Philosophy and Religion. Kung studied theology and philosophy at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome and was ordained in 1954. He continued his education in various European cities, including the Sorbonne in Paris. In 1960, Kung was appointed professor of theology at Eberhard Karls University, Tubingen, Germany. In the late 1960s, Kung became the first major Roman Catholic theologian after the late 19th century Old Catholic Church schism to reject the doctrine of papal infallibility. In September 2005 he had a friendly discussion about Catholic theology over dinner with Pope Benedict XVI, surprising some observers. In 2007, he received a Masonic award for his entire life's work. (Note: the one second break at 45:46 is where the original cassette tape was turned over.)
