Scholarly RS lectures

Last week was a busy one for 6.2 RS students. On Tuesday some went to Churcher’s College for a talk by Brian Poxon about Boethius’ views on Time and Eternity. This was an immensely scholarly talk about whether we can be free if God knows the future. In addition, there was also lots of helpful exam advice; Brian has examined for OCR many times, and wrote the revision guide we use at Bedales. On Wednesday, sixth formers went to Heythrop College London to a conference that examined questions of Religious Language and Life after Death. There was opportunity for seminar-style discussion, in which Bedales students demonstrated their confidence in talking about challenging ideas.
