(The Great) War as a Crisis in Masculinity and Muscular Christianity


Starting with the First World War, Rachel Mann examines how much the church has bought into the glory of war, blithely putting Jesus in combats. How much is war a product of toxic masculinity and what, if anything, might be redeemable?

Rachel is a poet, broadcaster, and Anglican priest. She is poet-in-residence and minor canon of Manchester Cathedral.
