Event Details
The Historical Society of the Episcopal Church will hold its Annual Meeting and Banquet on Saturday, June 16, 2018 in the Lettie Pate Evans Room of Virginia Theological Seminary, Alexandria, Virginia. The evening will include the Manross Lecture, named for noted historian and Society patron, William Wilson Manross. All events are open to public who are encouraged to attend.

The Manross Lecture will be presented by Peter W. Williams, Distinguished Professor Emeritus Comparative Religion and American Studies, Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. He received his Ph.D. in Religious Studies from Yale in 1970. Since then he taught courses on American religious and cultural history at Miami University. He served for several years as Director of the Program in American Studies and Chair of the Department of Comparative Religion at Miami. He also held visiting appointments at Bexley Hall Seminary, Bowdoin College, and Stanford University, as well as three grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Williams will be speaking on “Religion, Art, and Money: Episcopalians and American Culture from the Civil War to the Great Depression”. It will deal with what Williams calls the “Episcopal Project” of bringing into being a network of institutions, social movements, cathedrals and churches, and philanthropic projects to bring about an informal Anglican hegemony in American society reflecting an Incarnational theology.

The evening begins at 6:00 p.m. with a Reception. The cost is $60 and increases to $75 on June 9. Tickets may be ordered at hsec.us/banquet.
