Richard Leggett’s Retirement Lecture

Saturday, May 07 VST was delighted to host the occasion of The Reverend Dr. Richard Geoffrey Leggett’s retirement lecture. Dr. Leggett has served VST as both Professor of Church History and of Liturgical Studies since 1987. After his retirement, he continues his relationship with VST as Professor Emeriti of Liturgical Studies. An enthusiastic group of students, faculty colleagues, VST alumni and church leaders gathered to hear a fabulous lecture looking at the implication of living in a post holocaust world for liturgical formularies. Spanning the disciplines of liturgy, history and theology Dr. Leggett’s incisive lecture opened critical windows on the relationship between race and liturgy in the post colonial imagination.
