Jane de Gay and Rose Hudson Wilkin joined us to discuss Virginia Woolf, feminism, faith, social justice and sacred space.

Jane, drawing from her recent book, explores how Virginia Woolf responded to and wrote about social justice issues of her time (this includes reflections on the influence of her family connections with both the Clapham Sect and evangelical overseas mission); to sacred space (she appreciated spending time in both St Paul’s and Westminster Abbey, not when services were happening); the role of clergy (she depicted clergy in her books giving patriarchal and socially conservative sermons).

Jane was joined by the Reverend Prebendary Rose Hudson-Wilkin Bphil Ed, Hon LLD, Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons, Chaplain to the Queen, Priest in charge of St. Mary-at-Hill, London and Priest Vicar of Westminster Abbey.
