Subject: John Ray Conference
Members may be interested in submitting an abstract for this forthcoming
conference, or marking the date in their diaries.
John Ray and His Successors:
the clergyman as biologist.
Thursday 18 March to Sunday 21 March 1999
A joint conference of the Institute of Biology's History Committee, the
John Ray Trust and the Society for the History of Natural History.
John Ray (1627-1705) was one of the most important biologists in the
history of the subject and this conference will celebrate all aspects of
his life and work. He was ordained and his religious beliefs informed
his work and were widely influential. The conference will go on to
consider the British clergy (or their families) who were biologists and
their distinctive contributions to both church and science. This would
include theology, social roles and individual biographies. The third
focus of the conference will be the current experience of people who are
both clerics and biologists. Keynote addresses will be given on each of
these three themes.
The conference will be held in Braintree, Essex - Ray's home town -
coinciding with the town's 800th anniversary celebrations. Braintree has
a train service from London, is close to the A12 and the M11, and is in
easy reach of Stansted Airport.
Call for papers: Conference participants are invited to present papers.
Please send an abstract (250 words) by 1 March 1998 to Rev Nigel Cooper,
The Rectory, 40 Church Road, Rivenhall, Witham, Essex CM8 3PQ, UK. Tel

Register your interest to receive further details by sending your
contact details to Nigel Cooper as above.
