The Rt Revd and Rt Hon Dame Sarah Mullally DBE

We're excited to have the Bishop of London, the Rt Revd Sarah Mullally, to deliver the 2020 C.F.D. Moule Memorial Lecture on Wednesday 3rd June.

The annual lecture is part of a day of fellowship for Ridley alumni and supporters - affectionately known as "Moule Day" after the late much-loved C.F.D. "Charlie" Moule, former Vice-Principal of Ridley Hall.

Bishop Sarah's lecture will be entitled "Martrydom or Marathon? Combining Sacrifice with Sabbath", and will be followed by Q&A.

You'll have the opportunity to browse for bargains on clergy vestments and theology book stalls, as well as exploring a variety of exhibitions including an art exhibit by talented ordinands currently studying at the college.

About C.F.D. Moule

The Moule Memorial Lectures have been held annually in memory of New Testatment scholar Charles Moule since his death in 2007. Charles Moule was the Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity from 1951 to 1976; having trained for ordination at Ridley he later became Ridley Hall's Vice-Principal.

Moule's contribution to New Testament scholarship is still felt today by students of the Theology Tripos, for whom Moule's text 'The Origin of Christology' is a key text in any course on Christology.
