The Loschert Lectures

As part of Heythrop College’s 400th anniversary celebrations we launched a lecture series, The Loschert Lectures.

The purpose of the lecture series is to reflect, from the Christian perspective, on significant social, political and ethical issues of our day, in keeping with our Jesuit foundations.

The lecture series was made possible thanks to the generous support of Mr William Loschert, the chairman of the Trustees of the London Centre of Fordham University with which Heythrop College collaborates closely.
