This is a fascinating historical talk for people of lots of faith or no faith, for it focuses on the extraordinary lives of many - often quite ordinary - people from Nottinghamshire who changed thinking and Faith across the World.

Adrian Gray's presentation covers everything from medieval monks to Thomas Cranmer, the Mayflower Pilgrims, the first Baptists and George Fox who started the Quakers in Mansfield. But perhaps their biggest contribution is to have developed ideas of religious liberty that can now be found in the UN declaration of Human Rights. An enthralling story - shorter versions can be adapted to cover specific areas such as Nottingham, Mansfield, Worksop etc.

About Adrian Gray

I am a Cambridge-educated historian with around 25 published books on a variety of historical topics which you can see on my Amazon author page at: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Adrian-Gray/e/B0034P9K2M/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1?qid=1529568674&sr=1-1

I specialise in the history of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, but nationally also Victorian crime and social history, the history of religious freedom, and the history of education and government inspection (which is a lot more interesting than it sounds!). I am one of the leaders of local community efforts to develop Christian heritage for tourism in Notts and Lincs, leading up to 'Mayflower 400' but also including the many other ways in which people from the region have helped to change the world.

I provide a range of lively and well-illustrated talks that can be tailored for local needs.
