Event description

Description

In 1681, King Charles II granted William Penn a charter for a new American colony. Pennsylvania was to be, in its founder's words, a bold 'Holy Experiment' in religious freedom and toleration, a haven for those fleeing persecution in an increasingly intolerant England and across Europe. An activist, political theorist, and the proprietor of his own colony, Penn would become an iconic figure in both American and British history, although controversy swirled around him during his lifetime. Andrew Murphy, author of William Penn, A Life, will highlight a complex portrait of a man whose legacy we are still grappling with today.
