ABSTRACT: Christians have a vision of humanity and the environment that is shaped by their faith in God the Creator, as they believe men and women to have been formed in the image of God. In their desire to give full weight to the ethical dimensions of life, their will to protect the environment is based on faith in a God who appears, at least partly, through his creation. But their glance also turns to the world to come, because they believe that God will renew this creation. Do their current responsibilities to the environment have a direct impact on that renewal? The lecture will explore the ways in which the question of "the final times" remains delicate, both in a theological and philosophical way.
