Antony Lempert in Bishops Castle, 20 November

Dr. Antony Lempert, Chair of the U.K. Secular Medical Forum, will be discussing what is lost to medical practice through the influence of religion and he will consider how religious belief distorts current accepted attitudes to medical care. His talk draws on some of the many narratives of secular thought and opinion – the stories of blasphemers, witches, heretics, infidels and apostates – which have been lost or minimised in popular discourse, and relates this back to our own time and to the influence of religion in society.

The lecture is scheduled for 6.30 pm Tuesday 20th November at the YouCaxton Shop in Bishop’s Castle.
