About this Event

Since recent re-assessments of his work, this conference will be the first to explore the writings of Bishop Lancelot Andrewes (1555-1626) and his engagement with early modern cultures of religion, literature and learning. Andrewes was the most renowned elite preacher of his generation. His sermons were celebrated by listeners, readers and poets; he occupied powerful roles in the Jacobean court, and his writings paved the way for later reforms in the English church. Andrewes was also a famous polemicist, a major translator of the King James Bible, an internationally respected scholar, and an influential teacher at Cambridge. This conference intends to explore his writings in all their variety.

The conference will feature plenary addresses from Peter McCullough (Lincoln College, Oxford) and Kathryn Murphy (Oriel College, Oxford).

This conference has been sponsored by the Centre for Renaissance and Early Modern Studies, University of York and the Society for Renaissance Studies.
