Celebrate Anne Lock, the Forgotten English Reformer, While Enjoying Tea, Scones, and Learned Conversation
Thursday, December 2rd
3:30 PM
Meeter Center, fourth floor of Hekman Library
Anne Vaughan Lock was celebrated in sixteenth-century England as a reformer, poet, translator, correspondent, spiritual counselor, and political advocate. Born to merchant-class parents who served in the court of Henry VIII and his queens, Anne Lock lived in London and Exeter and spent time in Geneva as a religious exile. She published two books, both of which were reprinted several times, including a translation of Calvin's sermons. Lock’s writings are now available through the University of Chicago Press in a modern spelling edition that restores her voice and her place in the intertwined political, social, and religious life of the Tudor period.
Join us at the Meeter Center for a talk and discussion led by Susan Felch, the editor of this new edition of Lock’s work. This conversation will be accompanied by tea, scones, homemade jam and clotted cream.
