Dr Eugene Stockton
Blue Mountain Education
& Research Trust
Eugene Stockton, as a priest of the Diocese of Parramatta (NSW), was a longtime seminary lecturer and served in parish, university and Aboriginal ministries. He has degrees in Divinity, Philosophy and Sacred Scripture. As an archaeologist he has engaged in excavations and surveys in many parts of the Middle East and Australia. These varied interests have led to many publications, especially in the pursuit of an Australian spirituality.
The Blue Mountain Education & Rsearch Trust (BMERT) was legally established in May 2008, with initial capital derived from the sales of Blue Mountain Dreaming.
To date the Trust has published fourteen books and it also supports the ongoing work of the Greater Blue Mountains Aboriginal Studies Forum (established 2010) which coordinates field work in the Blue Mountains recording the history of the indigenous pre-European occupation and history of the Blue Mountains.
