Speaker: Revd John Witheridge

Archibald Campbell Tait was Queen Victoria’s favourite Archbishop of Canterbury. While not always successful, his leadership of the Church during a period of controversy at home and challenge overseas was bravely accomplished against a background of personal tragedy. John Witheridge has been Chaplain to Archbishop Runcie, Senior Chaplain at Eton and Headmaster of Charterhouse. He is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and a Chaplain to The Queen.
This meeting is open only to Friends of Lambeth Palace Library.
