Live vidchat “The Church that Kickstarted Vegetarianism”
Our second vegetarian history live vidchat brings together two historians who covered the same movement from opposite ends, but have never talked before.
Organised vegetarianism in the 19th century mostly goes back to one church, the “Bible Christians”. They were the heart of “Radicals & Romantics”, episode 12 of “Vegetarianism: The Story So Far”. I interviewed local historian Derek Antrobus about the church in Salford, England, and American academic Adam Shprintzen about the church in Philadelphia USA.
The two historians
will talk talked for the first time and compared transatlantic notes in a live video chat with me on Sunday at 1800 GMT.
