Liquid Faith: The Spirituality of Water

15th November - 17th November 2019



Water plays a central role in all the world’s religions – it has often been taken as a metaphor for faith – flowing and yet still, yielding and yet in full spate. Ian Bradley, who has written a spiritual history of water, leads a weekend which explores holy wells, sacred watery sites, Biblical and other images and metaphors and current theories about water’s therapeutic and liturgical properties. 

Ian Bradley is Emeritus Professor of Cultural and Spiritual History in the University of St Andrews and well known as a preacher, retreat leader, writer and broadcaster. He is the author of over 40 books, including Water Music: Making Music in the Spas of Europe and North America.
