The event will take the form of a conversation. Prof. MacCulloch will be interviewed by Bryan Dobson, the RTE TV broadcaster.

The event is co-sponsored by CAI and the Church of Ireland chaplaincy at Trinity College, Dublin. It will take place at 1 pm to 1:50 pm at St Audoen’s Church, Corn Market (near High Street), Dublin 8.

“Changing Attitude, Ireland, has invited the author of ‘A History of Christianity’, Diarmaid MacCulloch, Professor of Church History at Oxford University, to speak at a meeting at  St Audoen’s Church, Corn Market (near High Street), Dublin 8., hosted by the Chaplaincy at Trinity College, Dublin.

His interview with Brian Dobson, noted RTE broadcaster, will deal with questions around the subject of Faith and Spirituality, and will no doubt deal with matters of gender and sexuality – as related to his own experience of institutional homophobia and misogyny in the Church of England. 

It will be interesting to learn how his audience will receive Diarmaid’s prophetic insights into the history and future of the Church’s understanding of spirituality and its connection with current issues that are currently diving the Provinces of the world-wide anglican Communion. I would love to be there, tomorrow, in Dublin!
