Event description

Description

On the north end of London lies an old nonconformist burial ground named Bunhill Fields. Between 1660 and 1850 over 120,000 people were buried there. In the center of this sacred space there is a courtyard with three memorials: one for John Bunyan, the author of The Pilgrim’s Progress; another for Daniel Defoe, who wrote Robinson Crusoe; and a third for William Blake, who composed an epic poem he called Jerusalem.

Professor Curtis Freeman has written a book called Undomesticated Dissent, which tells the story of religious dissent through these three classic works.

He will lead a seminar discussion 2-3.30pm the the themes of his book.

There will then be an opportunity between 3.30-5.00pm for short tours Bunhill Fields with Professor Freeman. Please note numbers are strictly limited for these, and will be allocated via Eventbrite on a first-come-first-served basis. If you do not have a ticket, you cannot come on a tour.

At 7.30 pm Professor Freeman will give a talk on his book, to be followed by time for questions and a reception.

Curtis W. Freeman is Research Professor of Theology and Director of the Baptist House of Studies at Duke University Divinity School in Durham, North Carolina. His recent books include Undomesticated Dissent and Contesting Catholicity. He serves as editor of the American Baptist Quarterly and is chair of the Baptist World Alliance delegation currently in a five year dialogue with the World Methodist Council.
