Sunday Talk: Burns and Religion in Ayrshire

David Allen

Sunday 19 June


Much is spoken about ideological beliefs that Burns had, but it is religious rather than political ideology that informs the most dramatic public contesting of ideas in his life as a poet. Join Professor Gerard Carruthers FRSE and Director of the Centre for Robert Burns Studies, as he explores Burns and the 'Moderate' Presbyterian cause, especially in his support for the Rev William McGill and the violent antipathy of the Rev William Peebles.
