Archbishop leads speaker line-up at Norwich’s UEA

An Archbishop, a Professor and the ‘Catholic Woman of the Year’ will be speaking at this year’s Newman Lectures at the University of East Anglia in May.

Church, State and Culture are the overall theme for this year’s series of lectures at the UEA, organised by the Catholic Chaplaincy, which have become one of the most popular lecture series at the university. 

This year’s speakers are Archbishop Eamon Martin, Primate of All Ireland (May 8); Dr Caroline Farey, of the School of the Annunciation, Buckfast (May 15); and Professor John Charmley, of St Mary’s University Twickenham (May 22). 

Lectures take place on Monday evenings at 6.30pm at UEA’s Julian Study Centre and are free to attend. 

Deacon Andrew Eburne, Catholic Chaplain at UEA, said: “I’m delighted to be able to announce such distinguished and diverse speakers.  Archbishop Eamon Martin will be speaking on ‘The Church and its relationship to the State’, and as Primate of All Ireland will bring a fascinating perspective to that issue. Dr Caroline Farey has won many plaudits for her work at the School of the Annunciation, including being named as ‘Catholic Woman of the Year’ in 2016, and she will be speaking on the Church and Sacred Art.

“Finally, Professor John Charmley was the co-founder of the Newman Lectures at UEA before moving to St Mary’s University Twickenham as Pro-Vice Chancellor, and his subject is ‘Churchill and the Churches’.”
