Seton Hall University's Catholic Studies Program and the Department of the University Core proudly presents "Imaginaries of Saint John Henry Newman" from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 1 in Stafford Hall, Room 110.

Dr. Cimorelli will present a lecture that will investigate how Newman's historical and theological work affected his developing views, or even 'imaginaries,' of the church and theology, as well as the implications of this development for interpreting the church and the notion of holiness today.

Christopher Cimorelli is assistant professor of theology at Caldwell University (NJ), where he is faculty assistant to the Spirituality and Leadership Institute and part of the RCIA-ministry program. He received his PhD in Theology from the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium (KU Leuven), researching the life and thought of John Henry Newman and the role of historical studies in the development of Christian traditions.

The event is free and open to the public. ACE event.
