Details

With the education in Ireland entering a phase of far-reaching change, there is a new climate for considering the place of theology in university studies. Must theological studies be controlled by the Churches? What can we learn from the experience of the "Godless" Colleges'? Is a university complete if it is without a series of theological components? Is it any longer possible to justify the exclusion of theology from the life and curriculum of the National University of Ireland?

Theologians Seán Freyne and Finlay Holmes join forces with historians Dermot Keogh and John A. Murphy to debate such themes.
