    Peache Professor of Divinity

    September 17, 2018, 7 pm, Great Hall

    The Limits of the State
    Dr. Badcock will argue that the secular state depends upon a viable sacred, in that, in the absence of the sacred, the secular tends to be absolutized. This lies at the heart of a range of problems in contemporary society, including the recent laws on medical assistance in dying.

    Dr. Kirby's current research focusses on the open-air pulpit at St. Paul's Cathedral, London, commonly known as "Paul's Cross," one of the most influential of all public venues of early-modern England. There were preached critically important hermeneutical and theological sermons that contributed to the transformation of England's religious and political identities.

    About the R. T Orr Lecture Series

    Since November 25, 1970, the R. T Orr Public Lecture series has been held each year in memory of Mr. Robinson T Orr, the son of a prominent London and London Township family of five generations, a successful businessman, an active layman in the Anglican Church, a staunch supporter of Huron University College, and a man of outstanding qualities.  Mr. Orr was a Lifetime Honorary Member of Huron's Corporation.

    Through the R. T Orr Lecture, supported out of the legacy left to Huron by Mr. Orr, it has been possible for the College to bring to London scholars of international reputation and outstanding theological educators.  Some past lecturers have been Premier Clyde K. Wells, Walter Wink, Michael Coogan, Adela Yarbro Collins, E. P. Sanders, John Dominic Crossan,Walter Brueggemann, and N.T. Wright.
