ISSR is now proud to announce that the 2023 Boyle Lecture on Science and Religion will be given by Lord Rowan Williams, theologian and former Archbishop of Canterbury on “Attending to Attention”.
The response will be given by the psychologist, Dr John D Teasdale, author of What Happens in Mindfulness.
The lecture will be given to an invited audience on 13 February, and will be Premiered on YouTube shortly afterward, with a live panel discussion on Zoom.
The original Boyle Lectures were given as a series of sermons at a number of churches in London and Westminster following their establishment in 1692. The ‘original Boyles’ lasted until about 1730, although sporadic later ‘Boyle Lectures’ continued to be given in the centuries since then. The lecture series was revived in 2004 at one of its original locations, the Wren church of St Mary-le-Bow on Cheapside in the City of London.
