The second lecture in our spring series will be given by Fr Gerry O’Hanlon, whose topic will be the legacy of the Second Vatican Council. December of this year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the closing of the council.
Fr O’Hanlon is a Jesuit priest and theologian who works at the Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice in Dublin. Previously he was Dean of Theology and Vice-Chancellor of the Milltown Institute of Theology and Philosophy. His books include Theology in the Irish Public Square (2010) and A New Vision for the Catholic Church: a view from Ireland (2011). Fr O’Hanlon has also published many articles in journals such as The Furrow and Doctrine and Life. These include the article “Contested Legacies” on the contribution of the recently canonised John XXIII and John Paul II to church reform and renewal (The Furrow, July-August 2014).
