Dissenters and Evangelicals

5-6 April 2013: Dissenters and Evangelicals (Leeds)

This workshop, in association with the Priestley Society and the Leeds Library, sought to understand the significance of Dissenting communities in fostering creativity, and also examined the under-explored creativity of other faith communities in the period, such as Anglicans, Catholics, and Jews.
