A talk to coincide with the publication of my book, A Secret History of Christianity.

The Inkling, Owen Barfield, whom both C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien regarded as the most innovative of the celebrated Oxford group, argued that the experience of being human changes dramatically over periods of cultural time. Our consciousness shifts, and in the modern period it has evolved in a particularly striking way. This has profound ramifications for how we experience ourselves, nature and the divine, which Mark Vernon will outline and discuss in this talk.
