Heythrop 400yrs: 'For the Greater Glory of God and the More Universal Good'
A two-day conference in celebration of the 400th anniversary of the foundation of Heythrop College and of the Jesuit Educational Tradition will be held on 19 – 20 June 2014.
The conference, ‘For the Greater Glory of God and the More Universal Good’ is organised by Heythrop College and the Institute of English Studies of the University of London. Scholars from Britain and overseas will explore the character and significance of the Jesuit educational tradition with respect both to the study of theology and philosophy, and to science, letters and the arts.
On the first evening of the conference, Thursday 19 June, there will be a concert of music associated with the Jesuit colleges at Liège and St Omer, performed at the Jesuit Church of the Immaculate Conception, Farm Street, and directed by Dr Peter Leech. This will be preceded by the Hilda Hulme Memorial Lecture, a public lecture on John Donne and Ignatian Spirituality delivered by Professor Dayton Haskin of Boston College.
The conference will close on the evening of Friday 20 June with a public lecture by Dr Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, who will reflect on the Jesuit tradition of liberal education and its continued importance today.
