'Early Modern Orders and Disorders' Notre Dame London Global Gateway
We're organising our third biennial Early Modern British and Irish conference this week, 'Early Modern Orders and Disorders: Religious Orders and British and Irish Catholicism' Wednesday 28th - Friday 30th June, at Notre Dame’s London Global Gateway, around the corner from Trafalgar Square.
I know it's incredibly short notice, but (if you didn’t already) I thought you might like to know that two Jesuits are speaking in parallel sessions on Wednesday from 3.30 - 5.00pm:
Thomas McCoog, S.J. (Fordham University) – ‘Fraternal Collaboration or Hostile Take-Over? The proposed amalgamation of the Irish Jesuit Mission and the English Province’
Bob Scully, S.J. (Le Moyne College) – ‘Edmund Arrowsmith, S.J.: the possibilities and perils of evangelization on the Catholic/Jesuit Mission in Early Stuart England’
In addition, there is a concert of English Catholic music to follow at 7pm, ‘Quomodo Cantabimus? The Echoes of English Catholicism across the Channel’, (including music from St Omers) in the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption and St Gregory, Warwick Street.
The concert at 7pm on Wednesday evening is public and free to attend with no booking required. As for the conference itself, if any of your priests or brothers wanted to attend a particular paper then we could arrange that at no cost. There is also a free drinks reception beforehand at Notre Dame at 5pm for any clergy.
