Piae Memoriae and an Abuse Scandal
My message to Michael Buhagiar regarding his paper,
I discovered your translation of Christopher Brennan's 'Piae Memoriae' for Father Patrick Keating. Firstly, what exactly does 'Piae Memoriae' mean? From your paper, I can reasonably assume it means something akin to 'sacred memory'. Would you agree with this? Could you elaborate? There are scant references or resources available online for this definition and etymology. I may attempt a Wikipedia contribution if my schedule will permit the effort and research. Secondly, I would like to know if Father Patrick Keating is the same Father Patrick Keating accused of the Child Abuse scandal found here; http://www.brokenrites.org.au/drupal/node/178. I find it a very relevant topic to discuss how we as a society reconcile deviant and reprehensible behaviour from the intellectual giants of our past. Your thoughts and insights on this would be greatly appreciated. Moving past the topic of Father Patrick Keating, the intellectual journey that I found myself on discovering Brennan's poetry is all you. Thank you, I am enjoying the journey.
I will update this post as the conversation develops. Or not. Responsion is the key to any conversation.
