Church & State

We are delighted to welcome Bishop Richard Chartres, for many years Bishop of London, a Lord Spiritual and now sitting as a life peer in the House of Lords. As Bishop of London Lord Chartres was at the heart of the establishment for many years. Few are better placed to explore the tensions inherent in the union of temporal and spiritual authority.
The relationship between the Church and the State has been problematic for most of the last 2,000 years. Emperors of Rome, Kings of England and, most recently the President of Russia have all sought alliances with the Church.
Do join us as we explore the relationship between the Church and State in the third millennium.Share:
