Seminar on Jacques Maritain

     In 1914, Jacques Maritain (1882-1973) was the first guest welcomed in their new guest house by the community of Solesmes exiled at Quarr Abbey, Isle of Wight. One century on, the seminar will reflect on the links between Jacques Maritain and England, and endeavour to investigate some aspects of the life and thought of Jacques and Raïssa Maritain which may prove of special relevance to contemporary English culture.
