There is a strange, interesting and delightful link between clergy and detective fiction. It isn’t just that it is a popular genre with clerical readers but many authors have used clerics as their detective heroes: think, for instance of G.K. Chesterton’s ‘Father Brown’. This lecture will be a light-hearted look at some of the more eccentric and entertaining Anglican clergy of the past two hundred years but will also investigate how they have been adopted as heroes in contemporary detective fiction. The Rt Rev Dr Christopher Herbert, retired Bishop of St Albans, now live in The Bourne and is a regular contributor to Haslemere Festival.
This event is at Haslemere Museum.
