    'What a Piece of Work is Man':

    A View from the Outside

     

    with Andrew Fellows

    on

    Friday, October 30th at 7:30pm GMT (3:30pm EDT)

     

    Part 3 of 8 in our 'Humanity Matters: Re-enchanting Homo Sapiens' series of webinars.

     

    The sheer range of human capacities is astonishing, even awe-inspiring. How do we account for them all? Today, we are used to explaining human talents reductively, boiling them down quickly to something more basic. This session will beat a path towards an understanding of our humanity which elevates us, even as it grounds us in created reality.

Best known for his seven-book series, the Chronicles of Narnia, C. S. Lewis was a scholar and writer of exceptional ability. Today, however, the scale and variety of his contributions to literature and thought are often obscured. Dr Jacqueline Glenny introduces us afresh to a man and a mind of enduring influence who had a deep connection to Cambridge.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/19133247/jacqueline-glenny-cs-lewis-and-his-legacy.mp3[/embed]...

The Round Church is one of Cambridge’s oldest and best-known buildings. It predates the University by almost a century. It is one of only four round churches still standing in the UK. It has been much loved and discussed by poets, preachers, antiquarians, and journalists down the centuries. And yet so much about its past remains a mystery. Debunking some popular stories about wandering Knights Templar, this talk, held in the beautiful setting of the Round Church itself, uncovers the far more fascinating truths that lay behind this amazing building. It looks at the foundation of the church in the early decades of the twelfth century and some of the ideas which led its founders to make it round.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/26144425/robert-evans-deciphering-the-round-church.mp3[/embed]...

In this History in the Round Talk, James Patrick explores the positive tradition of philosemitism, or love for the Jewish people, which has distinguished British Christianity from Anglo-Saxon times through to the British Empire.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/12170116/james-patrick-british-christian-history-and-the-jewish-people.mp3[/embed]...

In the inaugural History in the Round Talk, Robert Evans addresses the practice of history in the early middle ages and some questions it raises for today.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/12170307/robert-evans-god-and-history-in-the-early-medieval-west.mp3[/embed]...

To mark the 500 year anniversary of the Reformation, a city-wide church service was held to celebrate the truth of the gospel. Martin Luther's 95 Theses (1517) lit the fire of the Reformation and led to the reformation of the Roman Catholic Church, the reviving of essential Christian doctrines and the revolutionising of the landscape of Europe. Speakers: Andrew Fellows, Director of Christian Heritage Cambridge (4:55), Dr Jonathan Linebaugh, Lecturer in New Testament, University of Cambridge (33:05), and Steve Midgley, Senior Minister of Christ Church Cambridge.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/12165627/fellows-linebaugh-midgley-reformation-500-the-truth-of-the-gospel.mp3[/embed]...

The year 2017 marks the 500 year anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. When the integrity of Christianity becomes eroded and compromised, is a Reformation again inevitable? As a message to the Church, this talk by Andrew Fellows explores why history follows this pattern and imagines what Reformation might look like today.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/12165418/andrew-fellows-smuggling-jesus-back-into-the-church-a-reformation-manifesto.mp3[/embed]...

James Le Fanu and John West lead a presentation and open discussion. Part of a series of events put on by Christian Heritage to celebrate the life and work of C.S. Lewis, marking fifty years after his death.   [embed]https://roundchurchcambridge.s3.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/12153221/west-and-le-fanu-science-and-its-proper-boundaries-the-legacy-of-cs-lewis.mp3[/embed]...
