Lori Anne Ferrell, When did you last see your father? How the Victorians Curated the Reformation
13 June, 2018 @ 5:10 pm - 7:00 pm
Lori Anne Ferrell (John D. and Lillian Maguire Distinguished Professor in the Humanities, Claremont Graduate University) will analyze the work of rival nineteenth century subscription societies, The Parker Society and the Library of Anglo-Catholic Theology, investigating the complexities of their commitments to the idea of “reformation” in an age of new intra-confessional controversy in the Church of England. Ferrell examines how the Victorians published documents to correct the public understanding of British Protestantism; how this undertaking was designed to address the challenges of secularism and modernity; and how the archival industry of the nineteenth century continues to influence how historians conceive their studies today.
