Event description
The 2021 Ferguson Lecturer is Dr Rowan Williams (Cambridge). The lecture will focus on the writings of Maria Skobtsova (1891-1945).

About this Event

The Samuel Ferguson lecture is an annual lecture in theology hosted by the Department of Religions and Theology at the University of Manchester, in partnership with Manchester Cathedral. This year the event is in two parts, the lecture hosted by the Department followed by a presentation convened by Manchester Cathedral. The lecture will be BSL interpreted.

The 2021 Ferguson Lecturer is Dr Rowan Williams (Cambridge). The lecture will focus on the writings of Maria Skobtsova (1891-1945), poet and political exile, who developed a unique ministry in Paris with refugees and destitutes, and was eventually killed by the Nazis because of her active support for French Jews.

The presentation will explore Dr Williams’ latest book, Candles in the Dark (2020) which provides reflections on the present pandemic, and conclude with a Q&A.

Manchester Cathedral is running the Eventbrite booking process for this event. One booking reserves a place for both parts of this event.

Further details can be found on the Lincoln Theological Institute's webpages.
