James Steven, Academic Dean and Director of Liturgy and Worship at Sarum College, is giving the 2015 Vasey Lecture at St John’s College in Durham at 7.30pm on Monday 23 February on the subject ‘Anabaptist Daily Prayer: A 21st Century Synthesis of Liturgical and Evangelical Traditions’.
Michael Vasey was for many years tutor in liturgy at Cranmer Hall, St John’s College, Durham, and a member of the Church of England Liturgical Commission.
Given in his memory, the annual lecture is the only one of its kind in the field of liturgical studies.
“It is a great honour to be invited to deliver the Vasey Lecture, especially as my longstanding intellectual and educational involvement in liturgical studies was first kindled by Michael’s influence and teaching,” says James, who was a student of Michael’s when he trained as a ministerial student at Cranmer Hall in the mid-1980s.
Sarum College in Salisbury houses Michael Vasey’s liturgical archive. For more information about the lecture, follow this link.
