Christianity: The big picture – Diarmaid MacCulloch

Diarmaid MacCulloch will deliver the first 2017-18 Arts and Humanities Prokhorov Lecture on the topic ‘Christianity: The big picture’.
Diarmaid MacCulloch is known above all for his award-winning studies of Tudor England and his BBC television documentaries on the history of Christianity.
His books include Henry VIII: Politics, Policy, and Piety; Thomas Cranmer: A Life; and The Boy King: Edward VI and the Protestant Reformation. Among his television documentaries are A History of Christianity; Henry VIII’s Enforcer: The Life and Fall of Thomas Cromwell; and Sex and the Church.
Diarmaid MacCulloch, who in 2012 received a knighthood for services to scholarship, is Professor of the History of the Church at the University of Oxford and a Fellow of the British Academy.
The Annual Arts and Humanities Prokhorov Lectures host two lectures by world-leading academics and public intellectuals each year. Their public lectures are part of the University of Sheffield’s Global Humanities Initiative. They are open to academics, students, and the general public and are supplemented by lectures by Sheffield staff as well as a range of student-centred activities – such as exhibitions, workshops, and panel debates – facilitated by the Students’ Union and the student societies in our arts and humanities departments. The main themes for the upcoming lectures are capitalist markets and their ethics; thinking about the future; and the politics of faith in a multicultural context.
