British Historian Lectures on the Church of England and the Royal Family

by Jonathan Watts
Frances Knight, a lecturer in theology and history at the University of Wales, will present a lecture entitled "The Great Divorce: Could the Church of England and the Monarchy Stay Together Under Charles III?" The lecture begins at 7 p.m. Monday, April 21, at Pacific Union College's Dauphinee Chapel. In her talk, Knight will trace the problems of the modern Royal Family to developments which took place in the nineteenth century. In 1996 Knight published a book on the Church of England, entitled The Nineteenth-Century Church and English Society. She is a graduate of King's College, London, and received her doctorate from Cambridge University.

Knight's lecture is part of Pacific Union College's Forum Lecture Series. She will answer questions from panelists and from the audience after her lecture.
