The Bampton Lectures: 2022: The Age of Hitler, and how we can escape it

Tues 10th and Tues 17th May at University Church, Oxford

The age of Hitler is not the 1930s and 1940s: it is our own lifetimes. It is the period in which Western culture has come to define its values not by Christianity, but by the narrative of the Second World War. It is the period in which our most potent moral figure has been Adolf Hitler, and in which our only truly fixed moral reference point has been our shared rejection of Nazism. 

The prestigious Bampton Lectures are intellectually stimulating and often court controversy. This year's lectures take place at the University Church, Oxford on 10th and 17th May. You can register to attend the lectures, or listen to the recordings later on the University Church website.
