Historical stuff
January 25, 2011 09:51AM
I've been delving about at libraries in Britain for several years now in an attempt to trace the development of veggie-Christian activity over the past couple of centuries.

It seemed like a concise type of task when I began back in 2004 with a view to producing a short website article or perhaps a booklet. Since then, several archive projects have unfolded on-line and I've recently published a book which explores the subject in considerable depth: 'Familiar Strangers: The Church and the Vegetarian Movement in Britain (1809-2009)'.

It's all featured on my main blog & related links, if anyone wishes to check-out some of the precursors to contemporary campaigns and societies: www.christianvegetarianarchive.blogspot.com

All best wishes,

John Gilheany

Thanks Valerie, as you can see the focus is British but most of the insights that emerge tend to resonate with Christians throughout the developed world - All the best, John
