TORCH Welcomes Bishop Libby Lane


TORCH is pleased to be welcoming Libby Lane, the Church of England's first female bishop, to speak at our public lecture Me and My Beliefs: Challenges of Identity and Society. Bishop Libby will explore the pathway that brought her to this position and address an area of identity not always covered in diversity debates. A panel of prominent speakers joins her in discussing what it means to be a person of faith in Britain today and impacts on diversity.

On the panel:

Jas' Elsner (Professor of Late Antique Art, Faculty of Classics, University of Oxford and project lead on Empires of Faith)
