Rev'd James Hanvey, SJ: Publication

Rev'd James Hanvey, SJ presented papers which he delivered at three major conferences whose proceedings have been recently published. The first was enitled ‘Dignity, Person, Imago Trinitatis’, delivered at an Oxford conference on human dignity which was followed by its organiser, Professor Christopher McCrudden, editing the conference’s proceedings under the title Understanding Human Dignity (Oxford 2013). 

Rev'd Jack Mahoney, SJ: Publication

Rev'd Jack Mahoney, SJ presented a republication in 2013 by Bloomsbury Press of his study, Teaching Business Ethics in the UK, Europe, and the USA. This was originally published in 1990 by the Athlone Press, since taken over by Bloomsbury, who judged it a historically significant "seminal study", worth reissuing in 2013 in the Philosophy Division of Bloomsbury Academic Collections. 

St Martin Carving

St Martin, a Roman soldier, gave his cloak to a beggar, later revealed to have been Christ. Here he is dressed as a WW1 cavalry officer. The features of D'Arcy are at his request those of the beggar and not of the saint. The carving by Eric Gill, a friend of D'Arcy, was donated by the Society for the Destitute, in recognition of generous help given by D'Arcy (whose social preoccupations are not usually recognized).

The Bassett Vestment

Thanks to Fr Martin D'Arcy the Hall possesses a remarkable collection of about two dozen high-quality chasubles, in addition to several dalmatics and copes. As an example, the so-called "Bassett" vestment (named after the donor) is worth special attention. It is a faded blue velvet Roman chasuble made up of orphreys, the earliest containing an English 15th c. panel: set in a frame of panelled pilasters, supporting a canopy of a ribbed vault under a curving balcony, a King appears holding a bag and a ring.
