Announcing the 2017 Spring Lecture
A leading academic will speak at Exeter Cathedral next month as part of an ongoing programme of events around learning, theology and Christian discipleship.
Canon Professor Elaine Graham, who holds positions at the University of Chester and Chester Cathedral, will give the Cathedral’s Spring Lecture on the topic “Speaking of God in a world troubled by religion”. Professor Graham’s academic interests include the relationship between beliefs and actions, and whether religious commitment really makes a difference in today’s world.
The event is part of a cycle of lectures, talks and workshops organised by the Cathedral which aims to reach out to a range of audiences from those curious about the Christian faith through to those with an interest in academic theology.
Canon Anna Norman-Walker, who coordinates the series for Exeter Cathedral, said:
“Cathedrals have always been centres of learning and we recognise the importance of offering opportunities to people who are at different stages. Our termly lecture series provides an opportunity to be stretched academically as we engage with theologians both national and international as they bring their thinking to us on a range of stimulating theological ideas.”
The event takes place in the Chapter House on 21st February 2017 at 19.30.
