David Steindl-Rast Keynote Speaker

David Steindl-Rast

David Steindl-Rast's lectures impart his extensive theological knowledge into daily life. Steindl-Rast studied art, psychology and anthropology at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts before emigrating to the US. He joined the Benedictine community at the Mount Saviour Monastery soon after, a community which he continues to be apart of today. Brother David continued his studies at Cornell University, where he became a post-doctorate fellow.

Steindl-Rast later received the honor of holding the Thorpe lectureship, which was made more special by the fact that he was the first Roman Catholic to do so. In 1967, Steindl-Rast was approved by the Vatican to engage in a Buddhist-Christian dialogue. In the following years, he helped found the Center for Spiritual Studies, become increasingly involved with the House of Prayer movement and speak all over the world. He was recognized for his efforts in fostering healthy relationship and communication between religions) in 1975, receiving the prestigious Martin Buber Award.

Steindl-Rast has made many written contributions to the theological field, from the New Catholic Encyclopedia to the New Age Journal. His books include, 'Gratefulness,' 'The Heart of Prayer' and 'A Listening Heart,' all of which have been translated in many languages. His most recent efforts are titled 'Words of Common Sense' and 'Deeper than Words: Living the Apostles Creed.'
