Reformation Day Lecture, Thursday 1 November, 5:15pm Arts Lecture Theatre

Thursday’s speaker at the St Andrews Reformation Studies Institute will be Professor Alexandra Walsham FBA, Professor of Modern History at Cambridge.

Professor Walsham’s research interests fall within the field of the religious
and cultural history of early modern Britain and focus on the immediate impact
and long-term repercussions of the Protestant and Catholic Reformations set
within their European context. She has published extensively on a range of
themes, including post-Reformation Roman Catholicism; religious tolerance and
intolerance between 1500 and 1700; providence, miracles and the supernatural in
post-Reformation society and culture; the history of the book, the advent of
printing, and the interconnections between oral, visual and written culture;
religion and the landscape. She is currently beginning a new project entitled
‘The Reformation of the Generations: Youth, Age and Religious Change in England
c. 1500-1700’.

Prof Walsham will speak on ‘History, Memory and the English Reformation’. The
lecture will be followed by a reception.
