Kirk Lovenbury has been a tour guide at Bruton Parish Church in Colonial Wiliamsburg, for four years. He is the only non-Episcopal docent, which gives him a more historic than religious approach to this iconic old church and its place in American history. This class will discuss the building and the many changes it has undergone over the 300 years since it was built, in 1715. The class will also discuss the
religiousness, or lack thereof, of the five presidents who lived in Williamsburg, as well as issues pertaining to church and state, slavery and freedom, high vs low church, in the years leading to the Revolution. Just who was the Duke of Gloucester anyway? Come and find out. PLEASE NOTE: Although this is a one session class, one week after the class all members are invited to meet on Palace Green for a tour of the building.
