A celebration of St John Cardinal Henry Newman

Sydney 12 Dec 2019

The Sensibilities of a Scholarly Saint: A celebration of St. John Cardinal Henry Newman

Thank you for your registration.  We look forward to seeing you there.

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.

Date: Thursday 12 December 2019
