Bookings are currently open for our 2019 Summer School:
“English Faith & Culture From Reformation to Catholic Revival”
1-15 August, in Oxford (UK)
The Second Spring summer school explores the history, literature, and spirituality of Christian—and specifically Catholic—England, from its flowering in the late middle ages, through the period of schism and persecution, then into its resurgence in the modern age. The course culminates with an in-depth look at the 19th- and 20th- century writers and artists who contributed to the “Catholic literary revival”: a resurgence of Christian imagery and sensibility, prophesied by Newman in his “Second Spring” sermon of 1852 after the lifting of restrictions that had been imposed on Catholics since the Reformation.
