Salvatore Babones: who inherited Western Civilisation?

20 Apr, 2021

Campion welcomed American sociologist, writer and Associate Professor Salvatore Babones to speak at formal hall last week.

Assoc. Prof. Babones gave assembled students and staff a fascinating lecture on the development of Western Civilisation in England, compared to Europe.

His speech encompassed the history of the Anglo-Saxons, including the etymological origins of the various Gothic tribes, as well as other curiosities.

We thanks Assoc. Prof. Babones for his visit and his fascinating talk – the first formal hall lecture delivered by a guest speaker outside the Campion community since 2019!

Following his speech, first-year students Jaidan, Daniel and Matthew performed “Sparks” by Coldplay.
