Archbishop gives Holy Week lectures at Westminster Abbey

The Archbishop of Canterbury at Westminster Abbey

Wednesday 19th March 2008

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams gave a series of three lectures on the theme 'A Question of Faith' during Holy Week at Westminster Abbey.

The lectures focused on the relationship between faith and science, faith and politics and faith and history and the implications each of these subjects has on the individual and society. Dr Williams introduced the lecture series saying, 'I have given this series the title 'A Question of Faith'. The faith about which I shall mostly be speaking is my own, which is Christianity. But I hope that there will be in the discussion some matters which are no less relevant to other faiths and their relationship to the twenty-first century, its culture and its problems'. Following each lecture there was an opportunity for the audience to submit their questions to the Archbishop and a selection covering the variety of themes were answered.
