    Prof. Linda Woodhead, Professor of Sociology of Religion in the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion at Lancaster University will give the 2017 Hook Lecture at Leeds Minster on Tuesday 14 November beginning 7.30pm.

    Entitled 'Remembering The Dead: Changing Public and Private Practices' the 2017 Hook Lecture will look at how those who say they are 'no religion' on surveys make sense of life and death, how we are reinventing rituals, how 'no religion' is being institutionalized, and how all this relates to our Christian past.

    Linda is best known for her work on religious change since the 1980s, and for initiating public debates about faith. She has been described by Matthew Taylor, head of the Royal Society of Arts, as "one of the world’s leading experts on religion".

    The Hook Lectures, named in honour of Walter Farquhar Hook (1798-1875), a Vicar of Leeds who was passionately committed to supporting education and social welfare in the city, are jointly organised by Leeds Church Institute, Leeds Minster, and Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Leeds. They bring together faith communities, the university and the city by addressing themes related to public life and the common good.
