Icons, history, theology and liberty: the podcast

School experts star in the latest of the University’s Big Idea podcasts.

In the broadcast, Dr Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones, Senior Lecturer in Ancient History and Dr Andrew Wells, Leverhulme Early Career Fellow, Early Modern Intellectual and Cultural History, are interviewed by Ranald Leask, the University’s International Press Officer, along with Professor Mona Siddiqui, Professor of Islamic and Interreligious Studies, School of Divinity.

Taking ‘icons’ as their starting point, the speakers explore topics as wide-ranging as Hollywood’s portrayal of the ancient world, Muslim and Christian theology and modern concepts of liberty.
