Celebrate Anne Lock, the Forgotten English Reformer, While Enjoying Tea, Scones, and Learned Conversation
Thursday, December 2rd
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.
