'The Dark Side of Christian History' (February CHF Conference)

"The dark side of Christian history"
Saturday, 5th February, St. Ebbe's church, Roger Bacon Lane, Oxford, OX1 1QE.

Christian historians from across a wide range of fields will reflect on some of the major events in the past (and the church's role in the them) that are often cited as reasons to dismiss the Christian faith. There will also be plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion. Undergraduates are welcome, as are postgraduates, practicing historians and interested readers of work in the humanities. The day conference will be held at St. Ebbes Church, which has a special mission to undergraduates in Oxford, and is located in the heart of the city.
