We are marking two important anniversaries with six free public events.
The 500th anniversary of the birth of John Calvin (1509) will be closely followed by the 450th anniversary of the Scottish Reformation (1560).
To mark the extensive influence of Calvin and the Reformed tradition on Scottish society, a series of public lectures by distinguished scholars will be held from December 2009 to January 2010 at New College.
Drawn from different fields, each lecturer will examine the influence of the Reformation on a particular aspect of Scottish public life. Attention will be given to the Kirk and its doctrinal traditions as well as to its wider influence on political thought, literature, the visual arts and music. All events are free and no booking is required.
The 2009 lectures are all held at Martin Hall, New College.
