Event description

Description

'In a 2016 poll, one in 10 Britons claimed to have experienced the presence of an angel, while one in three remain convinced that they have a guardian angel. These are huge numbers and mean that, on some counts, angels are doing better than God.'

Acclaimed writer and speaker Peter Stanford takes a thought-provoking and entertaining twenty-first century look at the origins of angels in religious thought and their history across cultures. He considers human psychology and popular culture and asks why, in an age of disbelief, they remain more compelling and comforting for many than God.

Peter Stanford writes for numerous newspapers and has presented programmes for the BBC, Channel 4 and Channel 5. Other titles include What we Talk about when we Talk about Faith; Martin Luther: Catholic Dissident; and Judas: The Troubling History of the Renegade Apostle.
