About ‘Women and the Church of England’:

This exhibition marks the 30th anniversary of the ordination of 1200 women to the priesthood in the Church of England, the 80th anniversary of the priesting of Florence Li Tim-Oi, and the 10th anniversary of the legislation passing which allows women to be consecrated as bishops in the Church of England.

About ‘Her Booke: Early Modern Women and their Books at Lambeth Palace Library’:

This exhibition highlights material owned, written, commissioned, and translated by women during the long early modern period. It celebrates the ways in which women and their books were an integral part of England’s devotional, intellectual, and bibliographical cultures. Beginning in the late fifteenth century, the exhibition examines the production and use of books for personal and spiritual practices; books as a statement of power and piety; the development of the commercial trade in books; books as a site to demonstrate women’s intellectual ability; and the material evidence of women’s book ownership.
