Book Launch: The Infernal Word

Dates 05 Dec 2023

Hear a preview of The Infernal Word: Notes from a Rebel Angel

The Very Reverend Nicholas Papadopulos, Dean of Salisbury, launches his new book with a talk in the Nave of the Cathedral. The Infernal Word: Notes from a Rebel Angel is an irreverent and witty retelling of twelve familiar Bible stories, inspired by a series of addresses that The Dean gave while a Canon at Canterbury Cathedral. The book makes ideal season reading for anyone wishing to explore the story of salvation.

‘Witty and learned – Milton’s rebel angels re-imagined for the 21st century’ – Tom Holland (historian, author, podcaster)

‘Deceptively simple; profoundly insightful; immensely entertaining’ – Archbishop Justin Welby

We are delighted to welcome Katie Salamon, Wiltshire Harpist, to the event who will be playing during the evening.
