‘Oculus Sacerdotis’ - Pastoral Theology and Practice in late mediaeval England - The Rev’d Canon Dr Robin Ward
Oxford OX1 3LZ
This lecture will consider how the reform legislation of the 13th century was put into effect in pastoral theology and practice, particularly in the way priests were instructed in their duties pertaining to the cure of souls. Taking Chaucer’s parson as the model, the lecture will look at the English tradition of pastoral manuals, in both Latin and the vernacular.
Robin Ward is the Principal of St Stephen’s House, Oxford.
