Lecturer Dr Bruce Duncan CSsR

In 12 weekly classes from Monday 24 February, this unit traces the social engagement of modern Popes, from Pope Leo XIII’s defence of the working classes in 1891, Pius XI’s response to the Depression and the totalitarian movements, and then the new perspectives of John XXII and Paul VI, followed by globalising horizons with John Paul II, Benedict XVI and now Pope Francis.

The course examines how these were interpreted and debated in Australian history and culture.

Classes Mondays 6 to 9pm. Fee help available.
