Lewis, Tolkien and Christian Writers of England Tour
Be where C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and other English Christian authors lived, imagined and wrote as part of the June 2018 FPU Alumni and Friends tour. Join Steve Varvis, Ph.D., professor of history, and wife Teri Varvis in:
- Oxford, home of Lewis, Tolkien and the Inklings. Also visit Churchill’s Blenheim Palace, the Bodleian Library and monuments to leaders of the English Reformation.
- Salisbury, Bath and Winchester provide a wonderful mix of writers—Jane Austen and George Herbert—as well as Stonehenge, Roman Baths, medieval cathedrals and more modern monuments.
- London, home to Poet’s Corner in Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral and haunts of figures as diverse as Bunyan and Chesterton. Don’t forget the Globe theater and Southwark, where Chaucer’s pilgrims set off for Canterbury.
Alumni, friends of FPU and friends of friends of FPU are invited and plans are for approximately 12 days between June 14-30, 2018. Latest details as they happen at fpu.edu/alumnitravel
