Annual Canon Theologian Lecture

October 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Chester Theological Society presents the Annual Canon Theologian Lecture
In the Refectory, Chester Cathedral

Science, Myth and Being Human: Re-membering Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein
2018 sees the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s novella, Frankenstein: or the Modern Prometheus. This lecture will consider the origins of the work and its enduring popularity, not least through its many adaptations for stage and screen.  It will ask whether, given its affinities with ancient tales of Prometheus, the Golem, Pandora’s Box and Doctor Faustus, it is appropriate to think of Frankenstein as a modern ‘myth’; and whether it can still help us address the fears and hopes engendered by scientific innovation and new technologies.

Admission free – refreshments available
