To mark the end of the year’s celebration of the College’s fourth centenary, join us for the launch of
Heythrop College 1614-2014: A Commemorative History
by Michael J Walsh (former Heythrop Librarian and Fellow of the College)
The College which is now Heythrop has a long and distinguished – if somewhat peripatetic – history. Founded by the Society of Jesus in Louvain in 1614, it managed to survive the Suppression of the Society, though after moving back to England in 1794 it nearly succumbed to the hostility of the English bishops. In this commemorative history, Michael Walsh talks about the College’s various locations, and explains why it moved; he describes the people who taught in it and the lives of the students who studied in it; and he discusses what was taught, not least the surprising amount of science that used to find a place in the Jesuit curriculum.
Speakers will be Michael Walsh and Professor Maurice Whitehead, Professor of History, Swansea University
Copies of the book will be available for purchase. The evening will conclude with a wine reception.
Booking for this event is essential and spaces are limited, so please book now.
