The Theology of Desire with the Revd Dr Sarah Coakley (2015)


The contemporary church seems riven with controversies, particularly about sexuality, celibacy, and the role of women. Drawing deeply on the Bible, the early Church Fathers and the writings of Freud and Jung, Sarah Coakley argues that desire can be freed from associations of promiscuity and disorder, and we can forge a new positive, ascetical vision, founded in the disciplines of prayer and attention.

Chaired by the Revd Canon Mark Oakley, Chancellor of St Paul's Cathedral.
