5:29pm Monday 19th August 2013 in Headlines
SALISBURY Cathedral’s Winter Lecture series, which runs from October to March will focus on the Reformation and the immediate post-Reformation period when the church in England developed into a uniquely national church.
Six eminent speakers will explore different aspects of what happened and why. The final lecture, which takes place in Lent, will consider Easter, looking at the Biblical authority for the festival and how the modern church will be celebrating the events of Holy Week.
The series begins on Friday, October 18 with Trevor Cooper describing What happened to English parish churches after the Reformation?
On Monday, November 18 Giles Mandelbrote speaks on The Making of the English Bible. Tuesday, January 7 will see Tim Tatton-Brown discussing Salisbury Cathedral and the Reformation – the architectural changes.
And on Tuesday, February 25 has Timothy Hone looks at Reformation Music. All who attend this lecture are invited to attend Evensong at 5.30pm during which the music will link with the lecture.
The series ends on Tuesday, March 25 with David Catchpole and Tom Clammer exploring Easter: the biblical tradition and the modern liturgy.
