Queen Victoria and General Gordon: Heroes in the Age of Empires
Queen Victoria and Major-General Charles George Gordon were two prominent historical figures during the British empire’s late-nineteenth century. Often, the two were considered heroic figures in the age of empires – a period coinciding with the New Imperialism.
The link with empire and the role both Queen Victoria and General Gordon played in the imagination and discourse playing the age of empires will be the focus of this year’s Andrew Fuller Centre for Baptist Studies Annual Lecture happening online Friday, October 29 starting at 7:30pm.
This year’s guest lecturer is Dr. Gordon L. Heath. Dr. Heath serves as Professor of Christian History at McMaster Divinity College in Hamilton, Ontario, and is also the Director of the Canadian Baptist Archives.
People are welcome to take part in this special livestream lecture event online and will be able to participate in a special question-and-answer period that will take place following Dr. Heath’s presentation. The lecture will also be free to attend online.
