Fri June 2 – John Moriarty: Poet and Mystic

Friday June 2 at 7pm

A talk by
PROF. MICHAEL W. HIGGINS
Newman’s University Church,
St Stephen’s Green, Dublin 2

To mark ten years since the death of writer and philosopher John Moriarty, The Irish Catholic and the Notre Dame Newman Centre for Faith and Reason are hosting an evening lecture. Many regard Moriarty as a major writer, comparable to Yeats, Joyce and Beckett. The poet Paul Durcan has described Moriarty as “the original, radical, non-conformist questioner”. John sought a rebirth of a Christianity that was inclusive of all religions and mythologies, and that took account of the deep and often dark dimensions of our turbulent humanity.

THIS IS A FREE EVENT, BUT PRE-REGISTRATION IS APPRECIATED.
