Christian Contract Law and the Morality of the Market: A Historical Perspective
Monday 11th October (1st week)- 4:00pm
Prof Wim Decock is Professor of Legal history at the Universities of Louvain and Liege in Belgium.
Modern lawyers have been accustomed to thinking of law, morality, and religion separately. It has become odd and even undesirable to think of religious authorities as experts in legal matters. This lecture will argue that the first systematic and substantive doctrines of contract were developed not by lawyers, but by canonists and moral theologians.
This lecture serves as the capstone of the inaugral colloqium of the Pusey Centre for Theology, Law & Culture. To attend, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

In this lecture, he will share his take on Mark's Gospel and its place in the New Testament.

Wednesday 17 November (6th week)- 4:00pm
The Rt Revd Michael Marshall is Honorary Assistant at Holy Trinity, Sloane Square, sometime Bishop of Woolwich, and author of Edward King: Teacher, Pastor, Bishop Saint. King, once described as 'the most saintly of men and most human of saints', could aptly be described as a man for all seasons.
This lecture on Edward King seeks to reveal a human being who is fully alive, and who invites us to explore an enriched humanity with that same fulness of life and compassion, exemplified supremely in the person of Jesus the Christ of God.
