    The Radical Christian Enlightener:

     

    Exploring the Subversive Thought of Johann Georg Hamann

     

    with Dr John Betz

    on

    Monday, July 5th at 7:30pm BST

     

    Hamann is the key Enlightenment thinker that you don't generally get to hear about. He had critiqued Immanuel Kant's Critique of Pure Reason before that seminal work was even published. He analysed the key, self-defeating weaknesses in Moses Mendelssohn's capitulation to a secular worldview, and predicted the danger that this would lead to for the Jewish people in Germany. He was admired by Goethe, Schelling, Schlegel, and Kierkegaard, and was a significant inspiration to that great man's philosophical work.

     

    Hamann is a great example of how Christians engage thoughtfully with culture: could he be a model for us, as we seek to be salt and light in a collapsing society?

Step Into Cambridge’s History

The Cambridge Story Exhibition

The Cambridge Story is a 12-panel journey from Roman times to the present which aims to set Cambridge in context, giving you access to the greatest minds and movements which have shaped Britain over two millennia.

 

Highlighting the dynamic influence of Christianity on the cultural, political and intellectual history of the West, this is an exhibition which unveils the big picture, while keeping Cambridge in focus as a key centre of dramatic societal changes. Join us at the Round Church Visitor Centre for this enriching learning experience.

‘Saints & Scholars’ Film

Narrated by Sir David Suchet, our film ‘Saints and Scholars’ gives a compelling introduction to the rich history of Cambridge. In our 23 minute video, we invite you to discover the Christian story of Cambridge and to meet some of the most significant thinkers of the last few centuries. Watch the film below or view in person at the Round Church Visitor Centre!

History of the Round Church

Modelled on the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, the Round Church was built by crusaders in the 12th century. A city landmark long before the formation of the university, the church has stood as a witness to the Christian faith for nearly 900 years of Cambridge history.

Stunning 12th-century architecture

One of Cambridge’s most iconic buildings, the Round Church was constructed c. 1130 and predates the university by 75 years. The church’s imposing Norman architecture, marked by thick pillars and rounded arches, is complemented by stunning stained glass windows, fascinating stone faces, beautiful 15th century carved wooden angels, Victorian tiles, and much more.

 

Stop by the Round Church Visitor Centre and explore a unique part of Cambridge’s history!
