John Cornwell, a former seminarian, is well known today as one of the most eloquent defenders of religious faith from the militant atheism of Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion). Cornwell’s own bestselling books include Hitler’s Scientists (2003), Hitler’s Pope (1999), The Pontiff in Winter (2002), and his latest, Darwin’s Angel (2007), a riposte to Dawkins and a defence of every person’s right, if not to believe in God, to `doubt their doubt’. John Cornwell’s autobiographical account of his training for the priesthood is published as Seminary Boy (2006). Jesus College Graduate Society is proud to welcome John Cornwell as the guest speaker at the first Fellows’ and Graduates’ Symposium of Michaelmas Term 2007.

This talk is part of the Jesus College Graduate Society Graduates' and Fellows' Symposia series.
