Join us in Oxford on Friday 24th June for

Liberal Education, Human Nature & the State

a lecture by Professor Anthony O’Hear

At the end of our annual Forum on Liberal Arts, Education and Society - a gathering of more than 50 invited international academics, educators and others - we are welcoming members of the public to join us to hear the keynote lecture by Professor Anthony O'Hear of the Royal Institute of Philosophy and the University of Buckingham.

Friday 24th June | 6.30pm - 8pm

Blackfriars, St Giles, Oxford

 Free entry but registration essential. All are welcome.




We are pleased to announce that we are to continue our joint initiative with the London Oratory and the Order of Malta in the UK with another lecture series, beginning in October.

The theme of the forthcoming series is CREATION and we will be exploring this across the disciplines, with talks from scientists, historians and theologians.
Details of dates and speakers will be available soon.

The first series of lectures The Architecture of the Mass was a great success and you can watch films of all of the talks on our YouTube channel.


The Keynote address will be given by
Cardinal Robert Sarah


Two Benedictus academics - Rev. Dr Michael Lang and Dr Clare Hornsby - are amongst the speakers at an international conference on liturgical formation in light of the new evangelisation.  

Lectures will take place at Imperial College, London.

New initiative for Summer School & Forum Journal

From next year we will be teaming up with Second Spring Centre for Faith and Culture in Oxford - one of the projects of the late Stratford Caldecott and his wife Léonie - to run a joint Summer School and Forum Journal.  

The Summer School will be held in London as well as in Oxford, with the London focus on philosophy and art and in Oxford on literature and history. Students at the joint School will benefit from a wider pool of expert visiting tutors and the expanded possibilities for direct encounter with art and culture provided by the two locations.

With respect to the Forum Journal, it is proposed that an online publication be created that will be a continuation of Second Spring’s online discussion forum on education and the liberal arts, as well as a virtual space where scholars can submit academic papers for peer-reviewed publication.
