Eamon Duffy Coming to NYC

For the first time, I wish I were still in the Northeast! Prof. Duffy's work on the history of the papacy is essentially unparalleled in English, and his work on the progress of the Reformation in England has been, if anything, more influential:

Eamon Duffy, the noted historian, will speak on Mary Tudor, England's first ruling queen, and Cardinal Reginald Pole, Catholic reformer and Archbishop of Canterbury, who died 450 years ago this year. A sung requiem mass and concert, both with music from the Tudor Age, shall precede Professor Duffy's address. All of these events are free to the public and will take place on Monday, November 17, 2008 at Corpus Christi Church in Manhattan.
