Chester day trip enjoyed by Ehrhardt Seminar

On Saturday, 24 November 2018, members of the Ehrhardt Seminar were delighted to make a day-trip to Chester to visit the Dean John Saul Howson exhibition at the Cathedral Library.

The visit was organised by Prof George Brooke, the Rylands Professor of Biblical Criticism and Exegesis Emeritus at The University of Manchester.

Prof Brooke curated the exhibition and gave an informative presentation before guiding members around the exhibition and the Cathedral. Prof Peter Oakes, who has a familial connection to Dean Howson, also gave a short presentation.

The exhibition has been organised for the 150th anniversary of the first year of John Saul Howson, DD, as Dean of Chester (1867-1885), with particular celebration of his establishment of the Nave Choir and the commissioning and installation of mosaics in the Cathedral.

Further information, including the exhibition catalogue, can be found on the Chester Cathedral Library website.

Members of the seminar enjoyed a wonderful day in Chester. Special thanks must go to Prof Brooke and Canon Jane Brooke for their hospitality on the day, and to Prof Brooke for organising such an excellent excursion.
