ATLANTA (AP) - A former U.S. ambassador to the Vatican is set to speak at Emory University in Atlanta.

The university says Miguel Diaz will present the Aquinas Center of Theology’s fifth annual Major Catholic Speaker Lecture on March 6.

His lecture will be titled, “Though Hispanic Eyes, God, International Relations and the Human Good.” It aims to explore how religion can contribute to the development of human rights.

Diaz was born in Havana, Cuba, in 1963. His family moved to Miami in 1972. He was appointed by President Barack Obama to be the ambassador to the Vatican from 2009 to 2012.

The lecture is free and open to the public but tickets are required.
