    Transhumanism, AI and the Future of Humanity

    7:00 pmAndrew Fellows | The Round Church, Cambridge

    'Ye shall be as gods'. The temptation of self-deification is as old as the book of Genesis. Much newer is the staggering array of powerful technologies we can enlist to realise our dreams of 'improving' and redefining the human person, from genetic therapy to AI. In this talk, Andrew Fellows takes us to the fundamentally religious core of transhumanism and asks some hard questions of our newfound techno-religiosity.

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

With 31 colleges, 800 years of history, hundreds of thousands of graduates, many of whom have gone on to change the world, how could the story of the University of Cambridge possibly fit into a 23-minute video?

 

Come along to the Round Church Visitor Centre to find out how we did it, and meet some of the most significant thinkers of the last few centuries.

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!
