The Faculty of English and the Faculty of Divinity are holding an joint online study evening on Thursday 27 January 2022. The event is aimed at students in Years 11 and 12 with an interest in literature, performance, theology, religion, and philosophy of religion – especially those who may be considering studying these subjects at university. However, students in Year 10 or Year 13 who feel they would benefit from attending are also welcome.
The speakers will be Dr Julia Snyder and Professor Phil Connell. The discussion will explore the use of violent imagery in early Christian texts, and will introduce seventeenth-century English literary texts that bear on the 1640-60 civil wars and the deep religious divisions they engendered. Participants will enjoy two presentations and have the opportunity to ask questions
