The Making of Christian England: Then and Now?

  • Course Dates: Thu 8 October 2015, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

This course examines readings in Christian formation and devotion in Anglo Saxon and medieval England.

An interrogative theme throughout this three-part series is: what must the truth be, and have been, if people who thought as they did put it (and acted) like that?

We shall pose this question to the primary sources of Christian history and devotion in England: Bede and the Dream of the Rood; Alfred and Benedict; Anselm and Aelred of Rievaulx; William the Bastard and Plantagenet Edward III: Durham, Canterbury and Winchester; Fountains, Sempringham and Hampole.

Are the forces which worked for them still fit for purpose? For England now exists in another world, swirling with other allegiances.

Subsequent sessions in this series take place on Thursday 15 October and Thursday 22 October 2015.
