Public Lecture

“Restore Thou Me That Am Lost:” Our Foremothers of Faith

Wednesday, Jun 23, 2021 at 7:30PM - 9:00 PM PDT
Epl-banner960x460-02

One of the highlights of Regent Summer Programs is our free Evening Public Lectures. This series always features a wide range of professors and topics, and this year is no exception. All lectures will be streamed online, so invite a friend and join us!

This plea for spiritual restoration uttered by English Protestant noblewoman Frances Abergavenny (ca. 1530-ca. 1576) prompts another plea—that female interpreters of Scripture be restored to their rightful place in the history of biblical interpretation. Marion will introduce five evangelical great-grandmothers whose contributions to the study of Scripture deserve to be remembered: Sarah Trimmer (1741-1810), Anglican author of 40 books, including a commentary on the entire Bible; Harriet Livermore (1788-1868), American preacher and commentator; Maria W. Stewart (1803-1879), African-American abolitionist, moral reformer, and educator; Elizabeth Rundle Charles (1828-1896), English devotional writer and commentator; and Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896), American abolitionist and author.

Marion Taylor is Professor of Old Testament at Wycliffe College at the University of Toronto. Her research interests include the reclamation of interpretive work by women throughout history. She is the author of Handbook of Women Biblical Interpreters: A Historical and Biographical Guide (2012).

Dr. Taylor will be teaching the course Silent No More: Women Interpreters of the Bible from July 26-30 as part of Regent's 2021 Summer Programs.
