‘Irish Methodists and the First World War’ was the subject of the 2014 Annual Lecture of the Methodist Historical Society of Ireland held this evening in Edgehill Theological College, Belfast. Lecturer Professor Keith Jeffery is pictured here beside the table of historical documents on display in the lecture room. Professor Jeffrey has a special interest and expertise in this subject having made it the theme of his Lees Knowles Lectures in 1998 while at Trinity College, Cambridge.
