Professor Alec Ryrie at UoG

alecryrieOur colleagues in Theology and Religious Studies are hosting Professor Alec Ryrie from the University of Durham this week. Professor Ryrie will give a paper, ‘Faith, Doubt and the Problem of “Atheism” in Post-Reformation Britain’, this Wednesday (January 15th) between 5.30 and 7.00pm, in FCH HC203A/B.

Professor Ryrie is an eminent early modernist and scholar of the English Reformation, and it’s a real honour to have him here at Gloucestershire. His most recent work, Being Protestant in Reformation Britain (OUP, 2013), is a path-finding work for the field, and this is a rare opportunity to see one of our best historians deliver what promises to be a really excellent talk.

Hope to see you there!
