A session from the All Saints conference - "The Forgotten Wonder of the World: Christian Humanism & the Reformation" with Rev. Steven Wedgeworth - Bishop Joseph Hall once said, stupor mundi clerus britannus, "The English clergy is the amazement of the world." He was referring to the educational renaissance that had come from the English Reformation, as well as the related effects upon arts and culture. John Davenant had also said that the "English divines" were "the most celebrated in the whole Christian world." Yet most Christians descended from this English tradition, whether Anglican, Presbyterian, or otherwise, have mostly forgotten this legacy entirely. This conference will reintroduce some of the influential personalities and contributions from that era in attempt to reclaim the best features for the church today. The themes that will be covered will be political theology, classical Christian learning, liturgy, and catholicity (or ecumenical relations between churches). Saturday
