Event in association with

Church historian Dr Judith Maltby, expert on the relationship between Christianity and literature Professor Alison Shell , and former chair of the Barbara Pym Society Clemence Schultze discuss the impact of the Anglican church on women novelists from Charlotte Brontë to P D James.

Maltby and Shell have edited a new collection of essays, Anglican Women Novelists: From Charlotte Brontë to P D James, that look at how Anglicanism and the Anglican church affected the work of significant women writers. The essays throw light on the development and the diminishment of the Anglican church over the last two centuries and on the changing roles of women in the Church of England and in wider society.

Maltby is chaplain and fellow of Corpus Christi College and a reader In Church history at the University of Oxford. Shell is a professor in the Department of English Language and Literature at University College London and has published widely on the relationship between Christianity and literature. Schultze is a classicist with expertise on classical reception in 19th-century Britain and France. She is a keen reader of Victorian novels and of women’s novels from the inter-war period. Discussions are chaired by Rt Rev Vivienne Faull, Bishop of Bristol.

This event is part of St Hilda’s College writers’ day at the festival, a series of talks featuring the works of graduates and fellows of the college.
