Today’s TRS Faculty member is Associate Professor of History of Modern Christianity Frances Knight. Frances came to Nottingham in 2009. She did her Bachelor’s and Master’s at King’s College London, where she found most interesting the modern history of the Anglican Church. In 1995, Frances moved to Cambridge to do her PhD under David Thompson.
Frances’ main area of interest is the modern era, especially the nineteenth century, Anglican Church. While I’ve never sat in on any of Frances’ classes, Frances did serve as my internal assessor for my first year confirmation review. She is knowledgeable and very helpful, especially on Anglican theology and history.
Frances has unfortunately not uploaded a complete bibliography, so here are a few key texts.
- The Church in the Nineteenth Century. I.B.Tauris, 2008.
- The Nineteenth-Century Church and English Society. Cambridge University Press, 1999.
