Institute of Historical Research, Senate House, University of London


The first in an enlightening series of panel discussions bringing together leading historians on key issues of our time – produced in collaboration between History Today and the Institute of Historical Research.

Hosted by Paul Lay, Editor of History Today, and Professor Jo Fox, Director of the IHR

The first two decades of the 21st century have seen the ‘return of religion’, but it is the return of concepts and world views that many in an increasingly secularised West struggle to understand. Leading historians with a particular interest in religion look at the importance of the subject to understanding our past and our present.

Featuring panellists Tom Holland, Eleanor Parker & Alec Ryrie
