Abstract

Video of the inaugural lecture of Prof. Todd Weir, given at University of Groningen on May 28, 2019. In this lecture ‘What might a joint history of Christianity and secularism look like? The case of worldview’, Professor Weir explores how he intends to develop his chair of the History of Christianity and Modern Culture in the Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Groningen. The title of his lecture is taken from a question once posed by Talal Asad, who asked what an anthropology of the secular might look like? Weir lays out how he writes an entwined history of religion and secularity. His lecture revolves around secularism, worldview and heritage, three concepts that are central to his past, current and future research.
