Event description

Description


Tuesday 26 November, 5.15pm (admittance not before 4.45pm)

Professor John Craig (Simon Fraser University): ‘William Holcot's Books: Recantation and Repentance in Reformation England’.

William Holcot was a mid-Tudor gentleman, bibliophile and lay reader in the early Elizabethan church, whose experience of recantation during the reign of Queen Mary powerfully shaped his thoughts and actions during the Elizabethan period. Very little survives from Holcot's life but the few pieces that do enrich our understanding of a particular stream of Elizabethan Protestantism. This event will be followed by a drinks reception.

In association with the University of London seminar on the Religious History of Britain 1500-1800. All are welcome, but those wishing to attend should book a free ticket or email melissa.harrison@churchofengland.org not later than Friday 22nd November.
