Peter Lake (Vanderbilt): On Laudianism

Lambeth Palace Library, London
20 June 2023
5pm - 6.30pm
Free to all

Peter Lake, Professor of History at Vanderbilt, is one of the most distinguished writers on English religion after the Reformation.

Later this year Cambridge University Press will publish Peter's latest book, Piety, polemic and politics during the personal rule of Charles I. The central argument is that ecclesiastical politics under Charles I and Archbishop Laud in the 1630s represented a ‘full-scale making’ and ‘true reformation’ of the English church, rejecting much that had passed as normative since the mid-16th century.

Peter will discuss his findings with two fellow scholars of the period – Ken Fincham (University of Kent) and Anthony Milton (University of Sheffield, to be followed by a general discussion.

In association with the University of London research seminar on the Religious History of Britain, 1500-1800. All are welcome, but those wishing to attend should book a free ticket or email archives@churchofengland.org not later than Monday 19 June.
