This webinar is linked to the publication of The Future of Brexit Britain – Anglican reflections of national identity and European solidarity (SPCK, eds: Andrew Bradstock and Jonathan Chaplin).
Like much of England, the Anglican church was divided by Brexit. The essays in this book explore the reasons why, and the different perspectives found within the church on Brexit and on English, British and European identity.
The speakers at this seminar will develop that discussion and ask whether faith has a contemporary role to play in shaping national identity.
(It is hoped that this will be the first in a series exploring the relationships between all the major faith groups in England and national identity.)
