The Vincent Strudwick Annual Lecture 2015 entitled ‘Religion and Belief in Public Life: proposed new legislation in a time of cultural change’, will be given by Baron Williams of Oystermouth.
The Rt Revd Dr Rowan Williams is an Anglican bishop, theologian and poet.
Dr Williams was the 104th Archbishop of Canterbury, Metropolitan of the Province of Canterbury and Primate of All England, offices he held from December 2002 to December 2012, and was previously Bishop of Monmouth and Archbishop of Wales, making him the first Archbishop of Canterbury in modern times not to be appointed from within the Church of England.
Dr Williams spent much of his earlier career as an academic at the universities of Cambridge and Oxford successively. Dr Williams stood down as Archbishop of Canterbury on 31 December 2012 to take up the position of Master of Magdalene College at Cambridge University in January 2013.
