Reading group: Susanna Newcome’s Enquiry into the Evidence of the Christian Religion
The Early Modern ‘free-thinking’ reading group will begin reading Enquiry into the Evidence of the Christian Religion (1728, revised 1732) next Tuesday (Jan 18th).
Meetings are Tuesday evenings at 7.15PM GMT/ 8.15PM Central European Time (we hope that these times are friendly to those outside of Europe who would like to join too). Any and all are welcome to join – Newcome’s /Enquiry /is relatively short (around 160 pages) and she seems like a fascinating thinker who has received very little attention (she may, as Patrick Connolly argued, be the first utilitarian).
If interested, please email either Peter West (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Manuel Fasko (email@example.com).
