Preaching silhouettes – Lennox and Simeon!

by quaesitor

Yes I was paying attention – but i couldn’t resist pulling out my iPhone during one of the morning talks at the ELF last week when I spotted the silhouette that the great John Lennox cast on the wall while he was preaching. It reminded me of the even greater regency era preacher in Cambridge, Charles Simeon. The latter was famously depicted in a series of silhouettes by the artist Augustin Edouard.

In case you’re wondering, the Simeon collage is scanned from my copy of Handley Moule’s recently republished Biography of Charles Simeon. Definitely worth a read.
