Tertio Millennio Seminar is dedicated to deepening the dialogue on Catholic Social Teaching and its connections to democracy and free society between North American students and students from the new democracies of Central and Eastern Europe.
It was founded in 1992 by Michael Novak, Rocco Buttiglione, Fr Richard John Neuhaus, Maciej Zięba OP and George Weigel. The seminar is built around an intense study of John Paul II's encyclical Centesimus Annus, supplemented by readings from the classics of American political theory and contemporary articles.
Following the lead of Centesimus Annus, the seminar explores the "free society" as composed of three interlocking systems: a democratic polity, a free economy, and a vibrant public moral - cultural system. All classes consisting of lectures and discussions are given in English.
The program also offers an opportunity to partake in prayer and daily mass. In addition, in the leisure time excursions to a number of nearby attractions and historical sites as well as tours
of the city are organized.
You are encouraged to apply to participate in the Seminar!
