Chapter Summary

This chapter is the Public Oration delivered by Professor Emidio Campi (University of Zurich) at the Convocation of 10 August 2007. He presents Professor Joseph Cummings McLelland of McGill University and the Presbyterian College for the degree of Doctor of Divinity. An Orator naturally takes pleasure in presenting for an honorary degree persons distinguished in various walks of life, but there is a particular satisfaction in presenting a man who is a philosopher and heologian of great distinction. Professor McLelland's presentation of Peter Martyr's sacramental theology is interwoven with a rich variety of other theological motifs, including the doctrine of revelation, Christology and ecclesiology. Professor McLelland's important book Prometheus Rebound: the irony of atheism (1988) represents the Professor McLelland's mature reflection on 'belief and unbelief '.
