St. Paul’s Chapel in Lower Manhattan abides as New York’s oldest building in continuous public use, and as a symbol of faith, endurance, and social good. As part of a year-long celebration of the Chapel’s 250th anniversary, Trinity Church Wall Street is hosting a series of lectures exploring the chapel’s place in the city’s history. On Wednesday, February 1st, Jon Butler, Howard R. Lamar Professor Emeritus of American Studies, History, and Religious Studies at Yale University, will present “Gotham, Religion, and the Fright of Modernity: 1880–1960.” The event will discuss how organized religion, including St. Paul’s Chapel, met the challenges of religion as New York became the world’s largest city by the 1920s.
