Defenders of the Faith | A Talk by Catherine Pepinster

6.30pm

During the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla, the Christian Church will take centre stage once again, as the established religion in England. But why does the Church have such prominence in state affairs, and should it keep this privileged position in 21st Century, multi-faith Britain? Join  journalist, author, media commentator and broadcaster Catherine Pepinster to explore the powerful link between religion and the British monarchy from its earliest times, through to the Reformation, the Civil War, and the reconfigured wholesome family monarchy of Victoria and her successors, down to Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II — and into the future as the new Defender of the Faith is crowned.

Tickets £5, available from Eventbrite.
