This seminar series is organised by the Michael Ramsey Centre for Anglican Studies, which was formed in 2016 to promote pioneering interdisciplinary research into the global Anglican tradition in all its depth and diversity.
The series aims to examine the life, thought and heritage of the Anglican Communion from a multidisciplinary perspective, drawing on the study of theology and spirituality, liturgy, music, literature, history, philosophy, ethics, ecumenism and comparative religion.
It seeks to gather prominent guest speakers, research staff and postgraduate students from a range of Durham University departments, as well as members of the Church and wider public.
Seminars are free and welcome all. No advanced booking is required.
