Pioneers of Modern Spirituality: Book Launch with Jane Shaw
- Course Dates: Thu 25 October 2018, 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Revd Professor Jane Shaw launches the book of the 2017 Sarum Lectures, Pioneers of Modern Spirituality.
Pioneers of Modern Spirituality introduces four Anglicans – Evelyn Underhill, Reginald Somerset Ward, Percy Dearmer, and Rose Macaulay – each of whom was a significant influence in a revived interest in spirituality at a time when people were questioning institutional religion.
Jane Shaw is Professor of Religious Studies and Dean for Religious Life at Stanford University, USA, and was previously Fellow and Dean of Divinity of New College, Oxford, and Dean of Grace Cathedral, San Francisco. Pioneers of Modern Spirituality is based on her 2017 Sarum Lectures, Origins of Spirituality.
“A powerful, original and attractive book, highlighting the ways in which a liturgically rich and intellectually resourceful Christianity can provide the energy for radical witness and solidarity with the most marginal. Jane Shaw reminds us that Anglicans once knew a bit about this, and might do well to rediscover it at a time when such connections need making afresh in our confused culture.” – Rowan Williams
