Description:

The EMC welcomes Beth Quitslund (Ohio University) for a talk on "Scripture in the Image of Liturgy: John Boys and the Book of Common Prayer." 

This lecture focuses on Jacobean preacher and Dean of Canterbury John Boys (1571–1625), who dedicated his substantial life’s work to a novel mode of scriptural exegesis meant to bring the Bible and Book of Common Prayer into perfect alignment. His work illuminates both the flexibility of biblical reading in the Jacobean church and the urgency that he and his contemporaries felt over the question of how the church’s two books should reflect each other.
