Theos’ Director Elizabeth Oldfield spoke on 12th December 2017 at Perspectiva, an organisation which seeks to “transform academic, public, policy and practitioner perceptions of the validity and coherence of examining real world problems with a deeper appreciation of the influence of our inner worlds.” The event focused on Christmas, consumerism and confusion.
She spoke about the three festivals we celebrate at Christmas – domestic, pagan and Christian – and the disturbing, radical politics underpinning the Christian story. She drew on Theos’ report, The Politics of Christmas.
