From an email.

The speakers include Fr Thomas Crean OP, Prof Tom Pink, and Dr Alan Fimister. Full details here.

Quarr Abbey 19th -20th September 2015 Philosophy Seminar JACQUES MARITAIN and ENGLAND

In 1914, Jacques Maritain (1882-1973) was the first guest welcomed in their new guest house by the community of Solesmes exiled at Quarr Abbey, Isle of Wight. One century on, the seminar will reflect on the links between Jacques Maritain and England, and endeavour to investigate some aspects of the life and thought of Jacques and Raïssa Maritain which may prove of special relevance to contemporary English culture.

This seminar is organised by the Benedictine Community of Quarr Abbey, under the patronage of Mgr Philip Egan, Bishop of Portsmouth, and with the support of Mr John Hewitt.

  1. This should provide a good counterpoint to the attack on Maritain made by Prof de Mattei in his recent lecture.
