7pm each evening in Sal­is­bury Cathe­dral. Sarum The­o­log­i­cal Lec­tures: Glory and Long­ing with Dr Christo­pher South­gate. Glory is a term that per­vades Chris­tian scrip­ture and wor­ship, yet its mean­ing is elu­sive. These lec­tures will be­gin from the He­brew roots of the con­cept of glory in the un­der­ly­ing mean­ing of weight, sub­stance. To un­der­stand divine glory as a sign of what is most deeply real opens the pos­si­bil­ity of glimps­ing glory in si­lence, in ab­sence, in pain, as well as in blind­ing beauty.
