‘Reading the Mystery’: an Ignatian pilgrimage through times and places

Whatever the reason for Heythrop’s tragic demise, it wasn’t for lack of philosophical and theological creativity.  Starting in the St Beuno’s of Gerard Manley Hopkins, this pilgrimage will take us from the Heythrop Oxon of Bernard Lonergan and Freddie Copleston to Cavendish Square and the University of London where Gerry Hughes, Jack Mahoney and Robert Murray laid the foundations of Heythrop’s reputation for lively teaching and solid scholarship, and finally to Kensington Square where, in the company of some of Heythrop’s most distinguished lecturers and honorary doctors, we will ponder the intellectual and spiritual legacy that a younger generation of graduates will take into a very different future. 

13.00 Lunch
