‘Reading a Quaker meeting house’. Dr. Chris Skidmore – #ChapelTalks
16 March 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Most Chrisitan places of worship have obvious and well known architecural reference points- pulpit, sanctuary, table, pews- but Quaker meeting houses seem to be defined by an absence of such things. Dr. Chris Skidmore will be describing what to look for in a Quaker meeting house and discussing what that might tell us about Quaker worship and the age and history of the building.
Chris Skidmore is a Quaker and retired academic whose interests lie in denominational and architectural history. He is a member of the HCT group at Farfield Friends meeting house. He is currently putting the finishing touches to a book on ‘Quakers and their meeting houses’ for Liverpool University Press.
The talk is free although we would be grateful if you could consider donating to our emergency campaign at easydonate.org/HCTEC
