Pilgrims and Exiles
Posted 11 Aug 2020
The 2020 St Antholin Lecture will be given by Professor John Coffey.
We’re delighted to announce the 2020 St Antholin Lecture will be given by Professor John Coffey under the title, “Pilgrims and Exiles: Leaving the Church of England in the age of the Mayflower”.
John Coffey is Professor of Early Modern History at the University of Leicester. He has a particular interest in the rich and complex history of Protestantism in Britain and America and his most recent book is Exodus and Liberation: Deliverance Politics from John Calvin to Martin Luther King Jr. (2013), which surveys the political use of the Exodus story and the idea of Jubilee from the Reformation and early modern revolutions to abolitionism and the African American freedom struggle. He is also part of a team working on a five-volume critical edition of a major seventeenth-century memoir, Richard Baxter’s Reliquiae Baxterianae (1696).
The lecture will be held on 24th August, from 8-9pm. You will be able to watch it here, or on the Church Society Facebook page, where there will also be a livestream video with opportunity for questions and comments. We hope you can join us!
