The Revd Dr Andrew Davison, Starbridge Lecturer in Theology and Natural Sciences at Cambridge University and Fellow in Theology at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, was installed as Canon Philosopher in St Albans Cathedral on 8th June.
His appointment, is part of an initiative to help strengthen the Diocese of St Albans in the area of apologetics: giving a reason for belief in the Christian faith.
Immediately after his installation, he delivered his inaugural lecture: Knowing and Loving God.
Fr Andrew said,
“On the largest scale, on the national stage, keeping traditions of Christian philosophy alive and healthy means that they are available and heard in our public life. Again, it’s not the whole of Christian mission, but it is part.”
