The Julian Lecture 2024 by Rowan Williams 10.30am on Saturday, 11th May 2024

'Julian on the Trinity'

The Friends’ 40th Anniversary Julian Lecture at Norwich Cathedral by
the former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams (Baron Williams of Oystermouth)
hosted by kind permission of the Dean and Chapter


Rowan Williams last delivered the Julian Lecture a decade ago and, on that occasion, the cathedral was so full people were sitting on the floor.

Don't miss this precious opportunity to attend; just one of the things on offer in this year's May Festival.

We are so grateful for this special marking of the 40th Anniversary of the founding of the Friends of Julian.

Having spent much of his earlier career as an academic at the universities of Cambridge and Oxford successively, Williams speaks three languages and reads at least nine.[4] After standing down as archbishop, Williams took up the position of chancellor of the University of South Wales in 2014 and served as master of Magdalene College, Cambridge between 2013 and 2020.
