Paul's Cross and the Culture of Persuasion

Paul's Cross: 1616
"Paul's Cross and the Culture of Persuasion in England 1520-1640," an international conference hosted by the McGill University Centre for Research and Religion, took place in August of 2012.

Paul's Cross was a preaching pulpit that was located on the northeast side of St Paul's Cathedral before Christopher Wren's current cathedral. It has recently become a site of particular interest for cultural historians who specialize in the Reformation and early modern period in England.

The conference was organized by Torrance Kirby of McGill University. The programme featured a number of noteworthy international scholars, including a plenary talk by Peter McCullough of Lincoln College, Oxford. A conference programme that includes a paper on the "Echo of Print at Paul's Cross," presented by Thomas Dabbs is available here.
