Archbishop Vincent Nichols, President of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales gave the Inaugural Thomas More Lecture, 7 December, and took his inspiration from Pope Benedict XVI’s 2010 speech at Westminster Hall. Archbishop Nichols echoed the Holy Father’s words for the title of the lecture: “Faith in God is not a problem to be solved, but a vital part of the national conversation”.

Archbishop Nichols examines…

  • The place of religious belief in the public square

  • The engagement between the secular world and the world of faith

  • The search for community

  • Equality and mutual identity

  • Human ecology and spirituality
