Love's Performance: God, the World, and Dramatic Theology
Michael Kirwan is an Irish British Jesuit, who taught theology at Heythrop College (University of London) for twenty years, before moving to Ireland. He is currently based at the Loyola Institute, Trinity College Dublin, where he teaches and researches in theology in the Catholic tradition. His specialist interests include the mimetic theory of René Girard, political theology, and the conversation between theology and literature is rooted in his undergraduate studies in English literature.
