Elena Curti talks to Emily Buchanan about her new book “Fifty Catholic Churches to See Before You Die”. A treasure trove of places of worship from hidden gems to gothic, revival masterpieces, it offers a new way of understanding the history of Catholicism as expressed in its churches.
For the first time The Church of England has announced a scheme offering financial support to abuse survivors. Emily gets reaction from one survivor and talks to the Church’s Lead Bishop for Safeguarding, the Rt Rev Jonathan Gibbs, about how he hopes this will pave the way to a full redress scheme in the near future.
Renovation work at the Manchester Jewish Museum has uncovered a time capsule that was placed under the ceremonial corner stone in 1873 when the synagogue was under construction. The museum’s CEO Max Dunbar tells Emily what he can see inside the sealed glass capsule and what it tells us about the community at the time.
