2016 Erasmus Lecture

Now in its 29th year, the Erasmus Lecture brings in world-renowned speakers to New York—including Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Archbishop Timothy Dolan, Gilbert Meilaender, and Rabbi Jonathan Sacks—to address an audience of over five hundred people each year. In 2016, Ross Douthat’s lecture was streamed live to hundreds of households and its video received over 11,000 views. The lecture also appears in the pages of First Things and on firstthings.com.
