Lecture at St John the Divine

What contribution does the catholic faith have to make to the current debate about populism, the ‘rise of the right’ and other threats to liberal ideas and institutions?

Eighty years ago the then Vicar of St John the Divine Richmond, anglo-catholic theologian V.A. Demant, (later Regius Professor of Moral and Pastoral Theology at Oxford) published The Religious Prospect, a prophetic judgement on the inadequacy of much of the liberal thinking of the time for resisting totalitarianism. He believed orthodox Christianity provided a necessary foundation for liberal society, one which defenders of liberal values often neglected at their peril. What has his thinking to offer in our time?
