The Revd Dr Roger Latham

Roger LathamBefore ordination I taught in the English department at The Ferrers School, Northants, having studied English to Masters level at Leicester and Warwick Universities. I trained for ordination at St John’s College, Nottingham, and served my curacy in Peterborough before moving to Cumbria in 2002 as Team Vicar in the Cartmel Peninsula. Whilst in Peterborough I tutored for the diocesan Reader training scheme and have been an honorary tutor for LCTP from 2002 to 2009. I took up the Vice-Principal role in September 2009 and became Acting Principle in September 2014. I divide my time between that and being Officer for IME 4-7 (curate training) for Carlisle Diocese.

My academic interests include literary approaches to the Bible, postmodern hermeneutics and the ethics of interpretation, and I am also pursuing an interest in Anglo-Saxon spirituality.

In my spare time I enjoy wargaming and military history, watching and reading science fiction and fantasy, and listening to an eclectic mix of music, which ranges from medieval polyphony to Goth metal.
