A God Of Her Own - Emily Bronte & The Religious Imagination.

As the daughter of an Anglican minister, Emily Brontë was a regular church goer and never, as far as we know, wrote anything which overtly criticised conventional religion. But she also has the reputation of being a rebel and iconoclast, driven by a spirit more pagan than orthodox Christian. How far is this reputation deserved? This talk explores this fascinating aspect of Emily’s philosophy and how it expresses itself in her writing.
