Renowned Newman scholars to gather in Rome this autumn

22-23 November 2010

An International Symposium on Newman will take place at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome this November. ‘The Primacy of God in the Life and Writings of Blessed John Henry Newman’ Symposium will explore four key areas of Newman’s life and spirituality – his search for God and the challenges faced by those seeking God in a secular culture; his spirituality and a call to mission.
