On Friday April 4th at 7:00 PM at the Union League Club in New York City, the Society of St. Hugh of Cluny will be sponsoring lectures by two outstanding Catholic Apologists.
John Lamont will speak on the topic of the Church and the Rule of law. He will address not just the current predicament of the Church – the deficiencies of Canon Law in dealing with the abuse crisis in Ireland and elsewhere – but will take us through a more profound review of the historical and theological background.
Professor Roberto De Mattei will speak on the present situation of the Church – and how it came to be. By examining the historical roots of the present age, Prof. De Mattei will give us the background for understanding what is going on today.
Dr. John R.T. Lamont holds a D.Phil from Oxford University in philosophical theology. He has published numerous books, papers and articles. Prof. Roberto De Mattei is Professor of Modern History and History of Christianity at the European University in Rome, and has held numerous other academic and research positions and honors. He has written many works, including the recent The Second Vatican Council (an Unwritten Story) (English Edition 2012). For more information on Prof De Mattei, see HERE.
