Panel: What Did Brian Ever Do For Us?


When Monty Python’s Life of Brian opened in 1979, the Bishop of Southwark accused the Pythons of blasphemy to get their ‘thirty pieces of silver’. 35 years on, Richard Burridge, in conversation with Greenbelt trustee Rhian Roberts, asks why Christians were so outraged and how might they have reacted differently?

Richard Burridge is Dean and Chair in Biblical Interpretation at King’s College London and the first non-Roman Catholic to be awarded the Ratzinger Prize.
