Faith and Reason Lecture: Newman and the Great Apostasia

Event Date: 
Thursday, October 12, 2017 - 7:00pm

Free lecture with Edward Short, author of Newman and his Family. Growing up under the shadow of the radically anti-Christian French Revolution, John Henry Newman lived to see the apostasy first articulated by the philosophes spread throughout English and European society.

He went on to chart the rise and the efflorescence of this apostasy with brilliant insight. In “Newman and the Great Apostasia,”

Mr.Short shows how Newman’s apprehension of the character of this apostasy helped him to become not only a good shepherd of his far-flung flock but a prophetic historian.

Reception follows lecture. All are welcome.
