On Tuesday 3 November - the launch of Elizabeth Powell’s David Jones and the Craft of Theology: Becoming Beauty. Elizabeth is the La Retraite Fellow in Theology and Spirituality here at the CCS; she will be joined by: · Rowan Williams (former Archbishop of Canterbury) · Vittorio Montemaggi (Senior Lecturer in Religion and the Arts at King’s College London and Acting Director of the Von Hügel Institute of Critical Catholic Inquiry) The event will be hosted by Karen Kilby and (CCS) and Férdia Stone-Davis (Margaret Beaufort Institute of Theology, Cambridge).

The book

Through sustained attention to three artefacts by the artist David Jones - a poem, a painted inscription, and a wood engraving - Elizabeth’s book explores the material, dialogical and performative character of theological discourse. This engagement not only opens up new ways of understanding David Jones’s art but foregrounds the spiritual discipline of loving attention as the heart of all craft, not least of all the craft of theology.



We do hope you will join us to hear about the book, meet new people, and help us celebrate the launch! The event will start at 5.30pm GMT; to participate/attend, you will need Zoom details—to receive them please register at
