Who is Diarmaid MacCulloch?

Diarmaid Ninian John MacCulloch, Kt, FBA, FSA, FRHistS is Professor of the History of the Church in the University of Oxford and Fellow of St Cross College, Oxford.

Though ordained as a deacon in the Church of England, MacCulloch declined ordination to the priesthood because of the church's attitude to his homosexuality. In 2009 he encapsulated the evolution of his religious beliefs: "I was brought up in the presence of the Bible, and I remember with affection what it was like to hold a dogmatic position on the statements of Christian belief. I would now describe myself as a candid friend of Christianity."
