At a house like Oxburgh Hall, you never know quite what is going to turn up under the floorboards. But the owners were still astonished to find, last month, a treasure trove of lost artefacts – many of them hinting at the Norfolk house’s history as a centre of outlawed Catholicism. In this month’s magazine, Constance Watson and Thomas Caddick explain what was found, and how it illuminates the past.
More topically, meanwhile, we hear first-hand reports from Beirut after the blast and a Philippine parish which lived through severe food shortages in the lockdown. Matthew Schmitz and Jonathan Culbreath debate the new anti-racist activism. Thomas Caddick asks what the ban on “conversion therapy” means for gay people and religious freedom, while Eve Tushnet argues that the Church needs to offer a better future for gay Catholics who want to follow Church teaching.
We also interview the Catholic magician Angelo Stagnaro about illusions, the philosopher Larry Siedentop on secularism, Pravin Thevathasan on how Newman changed his life, and experts on the vaccine debate. All that and the usual panoply of news, analysis, features, arts and spiritual writing.
