Event description
An online discussion on the life and legacy of UCD's founder Cardinal John Henry Newman as part of UCD LGBT+ History Month

About this Event

UCD LGBTI Staff Network and UCD LGBTI Subgroup are delighted to host this event as part of UCD's LGBT+ History Month celebrations.

Cardinal Newman's legacy on church and society is universally accepted - however a point of sometimes controversy, is Newman's sexuality; his intense relationship with Ambrose St John is often speculated to have been a deep and loving relationship. Can we claim Newman as a Gay Man?

This online discussion chaired by Dr Mary McAuliffe, UCD with Dr Richard O'Leary of the LGBT Heritage Project Northern Ireland and Francis DeBernardo of New Ways Ministry, USA, will consider Newman's impact and legacy - and examine what it might mean for us to claim him as a Gay Man.
