How Like an Angel: Responses to Thomas Traherne
- Course Dates: Sat 14 November 2015, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Like George Herbert, Thomas Traherne was a poet of the spiritual affections, teaching his congregation to love better. Like RS Thomas, his was a voice from the edge.
This study day will hear from a range of voices on this seventeenth-century poet, mystic and Anglican priest. This will include a talk by Beth Dodd who has written a book on Thomas Traherne’s Poetic Theology. We will also hear from Patrick Moore, scholar in residence at Sarum College with a lifelong love of Traherne. Finally, there will be a musical response to Traherne: a jazz setting of Traherne’s poetry.
Composer and Baptist minister Ewan King was commissioned to create this liturgy by the bishop of London, which has been performed in Hereford Cathedral and St Paul’s Cathedral.
