Seminar 6:
The Poetry of Studdert Kennedy, World War 1,
Anglo-Catholic Padre

The Rev'd Geoffrey Anketell Studdert-Kennedy, MA, MC, was probably the most well-known Church of England priest at the end of the Great War. His preaching and poems spoke for and to a nation whose divisions over class were laid bare by the war to which situation Kennedy fearlessly proclaimed the radical claims of the kingdom lived by his Lord, Jesus Christ.

In this address, interspersed with some of Studdert Kennedy's poems, the Rev'd Dr Sherlock offers an insight into his theology, ministry and disturbing life.
