A Memorial Day in Honour of
Pioneering Irish Eco-Feminist Theologian
Saturday, November 2nd, 2019
10:30 — 17:00
Mercy International Centre
64A Lower Baggot Street, Dublin 2
Born in Dublin, Anne (Sheridan) Primavesi, initially joined the Holy Faith Congregation. Following her marriage to Mark Primavesi, Anne (with Mark’s great support) continued her commitment to spirituality, theology and ecology through her many published works, seminars, lectures, and study days in Europe and around the world. Several Irish and other European congregations were privileged to have her speak at their events. Beyond Ireland, many deeply appreciated her ground breaking work on the relationship between ecology and theology. As some have remarked since her death, she was way before her time, having been deeply influenced by James Lovelock’s Gaia hypothesis in relation to feminist theory and theology.
Woman Spirit Ireland, in conjunction with her family, are privileged to host this Memorial Day in her honour. Several resource persons have kindly agreed to be present with us, both to honour her great contribution to feminism and ecology, and also to ensure that her contribution continues into the future.
