The 2023 Walter B. and Kay W. Shurden Lectures will be held in Boston, Massachusetts on Wednesday, May 31.

Explore the myth of American “chosenness” in a special event to be held at one of America’s oldest churches. Dr. Catherine Brekus, Charles Warren Professor of the History of Religion in America at Harvard Divinity School, will be our keynote speaker for this year’s Walter B. and Kay W. Shurden Lecture on Religious Liberty and Separation of Church and State.

The event will take place at Old North Church in Boston, Massachusetts, on May 31, starting at 5:30 p.m. It’s the site where two lanterns were hung in 1775 as a signal to Paul Revere that the British were coming by sea, igniting the American Revolution.

The event is free, but you must register to attend in person or view it online.
