Lectures & Courses – 2019-2020


Myth & History
Contemporary Challenges to Faith and Politics

The lecture series runs from 24th October 2019 to 7th May 2020

European civilization, not least thanks to early Irish Christianity, is rooted in that unique synthesis of divine revelation and human reason, namely faith and scholarship, which are the hallmarks of authentic Catholic Christianity. Europe today, including modern Ireland, appears to be not only abandoning its cultural and spiritual roots but even explicitly denying them. As a result we are beginning to suffer from a cultural amnesia.
