The latest installment of the St. Robert Southwell, S.J., Lecture Series will be presented next week at Rose Hill.

Wednesday, March 28
6 p.m.
Flom Auditorium, William D. Walsh Family Library
Rose Hill Campus

Peter Marshall, D.Phil., professor of history at the University of Warwick, will present “The Origins of the English Reformation Reconsidered.” Taking a “forward” look at the English Reformation, Marshall will highlight how differently the early years of the reformation look when we keep in mind that the first generation of reformers were not “early Protestants,” but rather late medieval Catholic Christians.

The St. Robert Southwell, S.J., Lecture Series is devoted to exploring the history and theology of the Christian Church in the early modern period. The series targets the scholarship of the Reformation and the Counter-Reformation in Europe and the Americas from 1500 to 1750.

The annual lectures are free and open to the public.

For more information, contact Susan Wabuda, associate professor of history.
