Angelicum Professor included on list of surprisingly influential British in the Holy See

Professor Helen Alford, O.P., Vice-Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Professor "Ordinario" teaching the courses Pensiero sociale cristiano II, Storia economica, Sociologia del lavoro, Etica economica e responsabilità sociale d’impresa and Seminario Tutor (this semester also the seminar Mettere in pratica la DSC) in the same Faculty, was included in a list of surprisingly influential British in the Holy See in an article written by Catherine Pepinster for The Table (November 8, 2017).  In her article, Pepinster says of Sr. Helen:

"Over the years, various British citizens have worked in Rome at university level – Sr Helen Alford, for example, teaches at the Angelicum University, and has become a notable authority on Catholic Social Teaching. Sr Helen is exceptional for obvious reasons – the vast majority of contributors to the Church in Rome are priests".

Ms. Pepinster has publish a book on the matter entitled The Keys and the Kingdom: The British and the Papacy from John Paul II to Francis, published by T & T Clark/Bloomsbury.
