A leading Shakespearean expert from the University of Birmingham is seeking to reaffirm Englishness and St. George in an innovative new work which is partly an original arts event, partly a groundbreaking religious service. The project, entitled Redcrosse, is led by Professor Ewan Fernie, and takes its cue from one of the great neglected epics of English literature, Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene.
