Benedict XVI Lectures

In 2011, one year after the historic visit of Benedict XVI to England and Scotland, the Bishops' Conference started a series of lectures to commemorate the interreligious gathering that took place during the Papal Visit at St Mary’s University College, Twickenham.

The meeting saw representatives of many of the world’s major religions gather to celebrate the contribution of people of faith to the common good.
