The Faith of William Shakespeare

A one-day conference

Join us for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation to explore what that meant to Shakespeare and Stratford-upon-Avon.

Graham Holderness (University of Hertfordshire) will give a key-note talk about Shakespeare's Calvinism; Tara Hamling (University of Birmingham) will curate a special exhibition based on Reformation-related material from our Collections; Cathryn Enis (University of Birmingham) will speak about managing friendships at a time of religious division, and we'll also hear from other Reformation experts about Roman Catholicism in Shakespeare's time, iconoclasm, and the effects of religious change on Stratford-upon-Avon. The conference is hosted by Dr Paul Edmondson, Head of Research, The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.

With grateful acknowledgement to Lion Hudson Publishing for sponsoring this event.

Fee: £25.00 (£20.00 SBT Friends), includes refreshments (not lunch), and a copy of Graham Holderness's new book, The Faith of William Shakespeare.
