2017 Sarum Lectures – Origins of Spirituality: The Forgotten Anglican Innovators

Dr Jane Shaw, Dean for Religious Life at Stanford University is the speaker for the 2017 Sarum Lectures.

The lectures, organised in partnership with Salisbury Cathedral, will look at four Anglicans from the early twentieth-century Church of England who revived spirituality at a time when people were questioning institutional religion. Their work resonates with our own ‘spiritual but not religious’ age.
