Theology students have been enjoying the sights and sounds of London combined with a conference at the capital's specialist theology college. For many of the students this was their first visit to the capital and they got to see famous sights such as Big Ben and took the opportunity to shop on Oxford Street and Camden Market. They also thoroughly enjoyed seeing Lion King The Musical live on the West End stage.
As well as sightseeing the students headed to Heythrop College, The University of London's specialist theology college, where they heard from prominent philosopher Dr Stephen Law who offered really challenging ideas about the relationship between religion, philosophy and science.
Head of Thelogy, Mr Vaughan said the students's behaviour was exemplary and they made the most of the experience. "I was very proud that many of our students questioned Dr Law and engaged in some intelligent debate with him. This was a real show of confidence, maturity and philosophical insight," he said.
Another session was led by Dr Anna Abram who led a thought provoking lecture on the relationship between religion and ethics. Mr Vaughan said it was great to see Loreto students continuing to discuss these issues with Dr Abram, even after the lecture had finished. "It was an enjoyable and enriching trip, both culturally and educationally and has really helped to give our students a taste of Theology and philosophy at a high level," said Mr Vaughan.
