2017 Sarum Lectures – Evelyn Underhill: Practical Mysticism and the Rise of Retreats

  • Course Dates: Thu 27 April, 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

This Sarum Lecture series, held 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.

This lecture looks at Evelyn Underhill, a seeker who did not commit to the Church of England until quite late in life. She went on to make the mystical way accessible to the ordinary person through her writings and spiritual direction and was at the forefront of the huge growth in retreats for laypeople in the early twentieth century.

Speaker Jane Shaw is Dean for Religious Life and Professor of Religious Studies at Stanford University, and Canon Emerita of Salisbury Cathedral. She was formerly Dean of Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, and Dean of Divinity and Fellow of New College, Oxford.

Tickets are £8 per lecture or £27 for the series of four. Tickets are available on the door or in advance from Sarum College. Subsequent lectures take place on Tuesday 2 May and Thursday 4 May. There is a seminar in Sarum College on Friday 5 May.
