Lecture: Newman and the Great Apostasia

Faith & Reason lecture: Newman and the Great Apostasia presented by Newman scholar, Edward Short. A reception will be held after the lecture. All are welcome. Registration: https://edwardshortlecture.eventbrite.ca/

About the lecture: Growing up under the shadow of the radically anti-Christian French Revolution, John Henry Newman lived to see the apostasy first articulated by the philosophes spread throughout English and European society. Since he lived to witness nearly the entirety of the nineteenth century, from 1801 to 1890, he would chart the rise and the efflorescence of this apostasy with brilliant insight. In "Newman and the Great Apostasia," Mr. Short shows how Newman's apprehension of the character of this apostasy helped him to become not only a good shepherd of his far-flung flock but a prophetic historian. 

About the speaker: Edward Short is the author of two acclaimed studies of Blessed John Henry Newman, Newman and his Contemporaries and Newman and his Family, both published by Bloomsbury, as well as the groundbreaking Culture and Abortion, published by Gracewing. His most recent book, Adventures in the Book Pages: Essays and Reviews is also published by Gracewing. Currently, he is at work on the third volume of his trilogy on Cardinal Newman, Newman and his Critics. He lives with his wife and daughter in New York.
