'Can Christianity accommodate the new ethical sensitivity to animals?'

The Revd Professor Andrew Linzey

Gloucester Cathedral Chapter House, Lecture on Friday 2 June at 7.30pm

Can churches become animal-friendly? The lecture will explore the challenges - both ethical and theological - to traditional Christian thinking about animals and how far churches ought to accommodate them. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.

Professor Linzey is a member of the Faculty of Theology at the University of Oxford. He holds the world's first post in Theology and Animal Welfare - the Bede Jarrett Senior Research Fellowship at Blackfriars Hall, Oxford. He is also Honorary Professor of Theology at the University of Birmingham. His books include Animal Theology and Animal Rites, both published by SCM Press.
