Giles Fraser

Chosen: Lost and Found Between Christianity and JudaismPavilion Arts Centrebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

In 2011, the Occupy movement set up camp around St Paul’s Cathedral. 

Giles Fraser, who was Canon Chancellor of the Cathedral publicly supported their cause. His remarkable book is the story of the personal crisis that followed. As Giles Fraser found himself crushed between the forces of protest, the needs of the church and the implacable City of London, he resigned, and fell into depression and thoughts of suicide. Giles’s exploration of his family’s Jewish past makes this both a fascinating personal story and a meditation on the healing power of theology.
