|Title:||Leuven as a centre for Irish religious, academic and political thought||Authors:||McCafferty, John||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/7178||Date:||Dec-2014||Abstract:||The Irish Franciscan college of St. Anthony at Louvain was granted a bull of foundation by Pope Paul V on 3 April 1607. This small house in what is now Leuven, Belgium, became one of the most intense centres of Irish engagement with Europe. Its history, both that of the friars who inhabited the college itself and that of the soldiers, diplomats and merchants who supported it, is also the story of Ireland’s decisive step into Europe.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Embassy of Ireland to the Kingdom of Belgium||Keywords:||St. Anthony's College; Leuven; Louvain; Ireland; History; Franciscans||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||MacAodha, Éamonn & Murray, Aileen (eds.).
