Symposium – Johannes Scotus Eriugena

The last meeting of the St Saviour’s Symposium for the academic year 2010/11 was addressed by Dr Catherine Kavanagh of the Department of Philosophy, Mary Immaculate College, Limerick. Dr Kavanagh studied at UCD and Notre Dame, and is an expert in the thought of the ninth-century Irishman Johannes Scottus Eriugena. In her lecture she spoke about his interest in synthesising the thought of Eastern and Western theologians in his work. It was a great honour to be present at such a detailed presentation of Eriugena’s thought by such an erudite and polished lecturer.
