Lent Lecture Series
On Thursdays during March
In this Lent Lecture Series, the Dean of Lichfield, the Very Reverend Adrian Dorber, will be looking at the meaning of the Cross and how the Biblical writers, later theologians, artists and poets have thought about and portrayed the Cross.
The series is offered to all Church people in the Diocese of Lichfield and to members, friends and supporters of Lichfield Cathedral.
The Lectures are a series and are not designed as ‘one-offs’, so please try and attend them all – they will make more sense that way. To cover costs there is a modest course contribution of £10.00 per person.
