‘The Chamberlains and the Birmingham Civic Gospel’ with Andrew Reekes
Late 19th century Birmingham was renowned both as the ‘best governed city in the world’ and as ‘the most artistic town in England’. It was also the progenitor of the ‘civic gospel’, which sought to elevate and improve its citizens. Two unrelated Chamberlains, Joseph and John Henry, were above all others responsible for practically implementing the ideals of this gospel. This lecture tells their inspiring story.
