Building on History, Religion in London
Religious beliefs, the values they encapsulate and historical events all play a dominant role in the way that different communities interact internally and externally.
In this AHRC podcast you can lean about The ‘Building on History: Religion in London’ Project. The project is helping to examine how the past can help us work towards a better future. From oral history workshops to exhibitions and liaison with schools, this is a project that utilises public engagement and knowledge exchange.
We hear from John Wolffe, Professor of Religious History at the Open University, who shines a light on the different religious groups that make up our communities, and the role that events of the past have played in shaping their identities.
