On 27 November 2020 the Ulster Historical Foundation held a fundraising event in Belfast. The event invited reputable historians to speak on the age of Enlightenment and explore Belfast’s connection to the wider world during the ‘Age of Reason’.
These lectures were recorded and are now being made available to our Guild Members.
Dr Francis Costello - The Enlightenment, the American Revolution and the Society of United Irishmen
Dr Eamon Phoenix - The critical social, cultural and political atmosphere in Belfast and the province of Ulster during the period 1789–1795
Dr James Dingley, Chairman of the Frances Hutcheson Institute - Francis Hutcheson and the shaping of Enlightenment thinking in Ireland, Britain and Europe
