New Rector for Pontifical Irish College in Rome

Many congratulations to Father Ciarán O’Carroll on his appointment as Rector of the Pontifical Irish College in Rome (founded 1628). Fr O’Carroll is an ecclesiastical historian — I found his book on Cardinal Cullen very impressive and think it challenges some of the received wisdom about that prelate’s life, legacy and attitudes towards movements for political reform. Well worth reading.

  1. Glad to see a long overdue changing of the guard at the Pontificio Collegio Irlandese . too much power has been vested for too long in the hand of one man who wielded it with impunity and frivolity for his own ends. how can the trees in the clerical forest stand true when the roots rot underfoot.
