General Meeting and Dinner (April 2019) – The Enlightenment in Australia (Part 2):

The second Edmund Burke’s Club general meeting for 2019 will be held on Friday, 26th April at the Melbourne Savage Club. Attendees are asked to arrive at 6 pm for a 6:30 pm start.

The presentation will be on the topic of Archbishop John Polding and his response to the forces of the Enlightenment in Australia. Like our last talk, club President Lucas McLennan will draw upon aspects of his own Master’s research into this topic area.

Whereas in the last presentation, the focus was on the life and times of the first Australian Anglican Bishop, this paper will look at the Catholic Church.

At the conclusion of the talk, there will be a two course dinner with wine included, at the Savage Club, for $65 per person. Attendees are asked to book and pay online at the following link:
