St Anselm Hall is named after St Anselm of Bec who was Archbishop of Canterbury from 1093 to 1109. Called the founder of scholasticism, he is famous as the originator of the ontological argument for the existence of God and as the only archbishop who openly opposed the Crusades. His most famous utterance is that ‘God is greater than any of us can imagine’ and this honoured dictum still characterises the exceptional international and interfaith community that is St Anselm Hall today. This annual lecture commemorates the founding of the hall.
