Earlier this year, Pope Francis declared Newman a saint. A particular patron of Catholic Universities in the tradition of the Liberal Arts, Newman’s thought gives us all the opportunity to think about the nature and importance of education in the present age.
Please join the School of Philosophy and Theology for a series of expert papers, followed by a round table discussion of an excerpt from Newman’s diary from 1859-1879.
