The 2015 Wickham Lecture

12 June 2015

The 2015 Wickham Lecture by the Very Revd Dr John Moses, Dean Emeritus of St Paul's Cathedral, takes place at Manchester Cathedral this coming Monday evening, 15 June, at 7pm. The subject of the lecture will be: Peace and Peacemaking: Thomas Merton -- A Man for Our Times. Dr Moses' lecture will draw on the work he did for his 2014 biographical assessment of Merton (Divine Discontent, the Prophetic Voice of Thomas Merton, Bloomsbury, 2014).

There is no charge for the lecture, and you are warmly invited to attend both the lecture and the reception with drinks and light refreshments beforehand.

Unfortunately Dr Moses has had to withdraw from delivering the lecture himself on the grounds of ill-health, so Canon David Holgate will be delivering it on his behalf. However, there will be an opportunity for discussion of the lecture afterwards, facilitated by responses given by Prof Peter Scott and Dr Ben Wood of the Lincoln Theological Institute, University of Manchester, and copies of the lecture will be available to all.
