Rinse and Repeat: Christian Evolution and Kingsley’s ‘The Water-Babies’


Fri, 5 November 2021. 7:30pm


Explore the life and times of Walter Morrison in this lecture series featuring academics, archivists and architects.

‘Many consider the publication of Darwin’s “Origin of Species” as the death knell for Christianity. In his best-selling “The Water-Babies” (1863), however, controversialist and author Charles Kingsley (1819-1875) made child’s play of evolution, showing how it drew science and faith closer together, rather than driving them apart.’

The lecture is by Dr Jonathan Conlin, Senior Lecturer, University of Southampton.

The lecture will be held on zoom.

We are aware that there were some sound issues with the opening lecture in the Morrison series. We will take steps to remedy this before the autumn series.

Access requirements

We will be taking steps to dampen the echo which made our previous online lecture difficult to hear for some listeners.
