About the event

Professor Alec Ryrie is one of the UK’s most prominent historians and theologians, whose work considers the cultural and theological history of the Reformation. His recent book, Protestants: The Radicals who Made the Modern World (2017) explores the history of Protestant belief, from Martin Luther’s 1517 rebellions against the Catholic Church, to the present day. In this paper, he will explore how radical belief can shape, and be shaped by, emotions, identities and spiritualities.

This event will be followed by a free drinks reception open to all.
