    Aesthetics and the Knowledge of God

     

    with Matt Peckham

     

    on

    Monday, October 11th at 7:30pm BST

     

    Whether in story or poetry, through imagery or imagination, aesthetic experience brings significant meaning to our lives. But is this meaning merely subjective? Do aesthetics and the affections help the pursuit of truth or hinder it? And how might the Bible help us understand the interplay between 'head knowledge' and 'heart knowledge'?

     

    Join us as we consider the role that aesthetics plays in how we come to know things, revealing as we do the affective nature of knowing with its practical and theological implications.

     

    We hope you will consider joining us in person in the Round Church for this talk! A livestream link will also be added here closer to the event date for those who are unable to come in person.

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!
