Janaway Lecture - Tuesday 15th May
This is the last of 3 lectures on the English Reformation being
given by Tudor historian, author and broadcaster, John Murphy.
Entitled ͞Gunpowder, treason and plot͟, it will follow its course
from the murder of Lord Darnley, in Kirk o'Field in Edinburgh in
1567 to the activities of Guy Fawkes in November 1605. He will
explore how emergent doctrinal division between Protestants
and Catholics hardened so, that by Elizabeth I's death, the
accidents of succession had defined the substance of an
irreconcilable religious division. John will then consider if there
might have been another, better road to religious renewal and
reform than the one chosen for the English Church in the Tudor
Age of the 16th century. After the talk John will take questions.
Following this there will be complimentary refreshments
accompanied by wine or a soft drink.
Tickets: £7.00 (students and school children £5.00) are available from
