Dr Neil MacGregor, Former Director of the British Museum, will give the Bapsybanoo Marchioness of Winchester Lecture at Examinations Schools, Oxford, on Tuesday 10 May 2016.
The lecture will explore the stories and representations of faith in material culture. Fire in particularly has been a powerful symbol for religious ideas. Exploring those representations, the talk will take the audience on a journey across times and religions, from the burning bush of the Exodus story to the flames representing the Spirit at Pentecost.
This event is organised by the Faculty of Theology and Religion. It is free, and open to all, but please reserve a seat by visiting http://www.torch.ox.ac.uk/fire-faith.
