Seminar 6:
An Anglican Precursor of Current Ecotheology

In recent decades, ecological perspectives have become a significant theme in the theology of creation. We'll ask here whether there might be earlier indications of this growing concern, especially in nineteenth century Anglican thinking. We shall look at B. F. Westcott's 'Gospel of Creation' in the context of the understanding of the natural world in nineteenth-century English popular thought before moving on to relate this to the approach taken to the doctrine of creation by several more recent Anglican writers.
