    Becoming Modern: Recreating Past, Present and Future

    7:00 pmProfessor Meic Pearse | The Round Church, Cambridge

    Modernization – leaving the village for the cities; industrialization; working outside the home rather than in it; individualism and the severing of community ties – has been the defining human experience of the past two and a half centuries. This has had profound consequences for our sense of identity, and has opened the door to the rise of modern ideologies: secular metanarratives that claim meta-explanatory powers. It has also transformed what the past means for ordinary people – with consequences for how we view the present and the future. This lecture will explore some of the more important challenges this presents for a coherent, Christian view of the world, and of ourselves.

Round Church Guided Walks

We love Cambridge, and believe that the best way to experience it is on foot with a guide who appreciates its treasures. We’ve been leading our acclaimed Round Church walks for over 25 years, and work with a dedicated team of local guides to bring you a small-group walking experience which is personal, engaging and unforgettable.

 

Our approach is a little different from a standard tourist walk: we believe that ideas matter, and focus on how a small number of big ideas have shaped the university over eight eventful centuries. Join us on a walk to see just how much Cambridge’s story of saints, sinners, sceptics, and scholars has to say to us today.
