This podcast series introduces topics for the OCR Religious Studies Developments in Christian Thought section of the A Level. In our teaching at The Manchester Grammar School, we get students to listen to these before beginning a topic so that they already have some background understanding, vocabulary, and a sense of the landscape of a topic. It speeds up their learning and engagement in discussion.
N.B. It was 1845 that Marx and Engels met in Cheetham's Library in what was MGS, not the 1870's as mentioned at the outset of this podcast.
