Prof. Diarmaid MacCulloch - Silence in Modern and Future Christianities

Lecture 6: Silence in Modern and Future Christianities

We ponder the relation of agnosticism to silence; the role of music in silence and Christian understanding; the relationship between Word and Spirit in the future of Christian life.
