THURSDAY 14 MARCH 2013 AT 6.30PM (following Choral Evensong at 5.30pm)

To be given by Canon Dr Judith Maltby
Chaplain and Fellow of Corpus Christi College, Reader in Church History at the University of Oxford

To take place in the nave of the Cathedral - free entry and all are welcome.

This lecture will be hosted by the Dean of Chichester, who explains: 'On 14 March 2013 the Revd Dr Judith Maltby, Chaplain and Fellow of Corpus Christi College, Oxford and Reader in Church History, will give a lecture  entitled Between Prayer Books: The Debate over 'set' and 'free' public prayer in Revolutionary England (1645 - 1660).  The diversity of worship during this period of 'inter-regnum' forms an important background to the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, and also gives food for thought on contemporary practice in the Church of England.  Dr Maltby has done much work in the field of the Prayer Book, and is a compelling speaker.'

Dr Judith Maltby, Chaplain and Fellow of Corpus since 1993, was born in the USA.  After doctoral studies at the University of Cambridge, she taught church history at Salisbury and Wells Theological College, was ordained priest in 1994 and made Reader in Church History by the University of Oxford in 2004.  She is honorary Canon Theologian of Leicester and Winchester Cathedrals, a canon of Christ Church, Oxford, and represents the University in General Synod.  An occasional contributor on contemporary issues for Radio 4 and The Guardian, her publications include: Prayer Book and People in Elizabethan and Early Stuart England (CUP 1998); Religion in Revolutionary England (edited with Christopher Durston, Manchester UP, 2006), and The Established Church: Past, Present and Future (edited with Mark Chapman and William Whyte, Continuum 2011).  In addition to her research on the Church of England in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, she is co-editing a volume with Dr Alison Shell (UCL) on Anglican women novelists, as well as contributing an essay on Dame Rose Macaulay.
