THIRD WEEK: Newman's Pastoral Idea of a University

Dr. Paul Shrimpton

‘Newman’s Pastoral Idea of a University’

The Old Palace (Catholic Chaplaicny), Rose Place
Tuesday 25th October, 8.30pm

Dr. Shrimpton is a member of Opus Dei and has taught at Magdalen College School for twenty-four years. He has published A Catholic Eton? Newman’s Oratory School and is currently working on a book on Newman’s pastoral idea of a university education. He will examine how the idea of human flourishing underpins Newman’s conception of education, influencing his idea of the university in which the true object is not instruction in a particular subject, but the development of a mature human individual.
