According to most philosophers, God in making the world enslaved it.

According to Christianity, in making it, He set it free. God had written, not so much a poem,

but rather a play; a play he had planned as perfect, but which had necessarily been left to human actors and stage-managers, who had since made a great mess of it.

Orthodoxy – GK Chesterton, 1874-1936

The inaugural Kathleen Hall lecture will be given by our Patron, the Rt Revd Dr Rowan Williams, on 18 September 2021 in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, following Radius's AGM in the morning.


We have booked Thirsk, from 17-19 September for a residential weekend, and you can register an interest now by emailing: [email protected].

Plague and Pandemic is a collection of narratives, poems, monologues and two short plays to be performed as a staged reading or full performance. The collection takes in the Black Death of 1348, the Great Plague of 1665, the Spanish Flu of 1918 and the Coronavirus of 2020. Even though the volume features dramas set in dark times, there are many light-hearted moments and the collection as a whole testifies to the resilience of the human spirit. Cost: £7.

See here for further details of how to buy Plague and Pandemic together with Reconciliation/Remembrance for the special offer price of £12.50.
