CASTLECOOTE HOUSE LECTURES – 2019

Myth & History

Lectures continue in March, April, and May 2019

The talks are aimed at helping to understand Scripture and Liturgy by examining the setting in life (Sitz im Leben) in which the texts were created. Throughout this series we will be considering testament narratives within their whole Judeo–Christian background and seek to examine the paradigmatic significance the stories had for the society in which they evolved and look at their meaning, if any, for us today.

In August 2017, Kevin Myers briefy became the most infamous journalist in the world afer being sacked by The Sunday Times for making allegedly ‘anti-Semitic’ remarks in his column. Soon aferwards, he was denounced by the Taoiseach and Tanaiste who applauded The Sunday Times’ actions – the first time in history that the Irish government has supported a foreign organisation against an Irish citizen without even a hint of due process.
