The Pope Name-Dropped This Controversial Priest

Jesuit writer was repeatedly rebuked by Rome.

September 6, 2023  0

In recent in-flight remarks, Pope Francis spoke briefly about Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881–1955), a Jesuit priest and author. Trained as a paleontologist, de Chardin blended spiritual matters with the idea of evolution, often describing creation as evolving toward unity with God. Church officials repeatedly spoke out against his ideas and writings. Many believe he was a racist, owing to a slew of comments he made in his writings over the course of his life. In this episode of The Download, hosts Simon Rafe, Trey Brock and Bradley Eli discuss the troublesome writings and legacy of Fr. de Chardin.
