Rappahannock Community College’s Rappahannock Institute for Lifelong Learning (RILL) will offer several classes this summer with some held in-person and others on Zoom.
“Church and State in Colonial and Revolutionary Virginia” will examine how Virginia moved from a royal colony with few dissenters and a well-established Church of England to an independent commonwealth that declared religious freedom to be a natural right of mankind. Robert Teagle, executive director of Historic Christ Church and Museum in Weems, will teach the class on May 26, June 2 and June 9 from 10 a.m. to noon each day in the Bayne Center. Advanced registration and payment of $35 is required.
The Rev. Bob Prichard will discuss “The Invention and Evolution of Slavery” through Zoom on June 9, 16 and 23 from 1-3 p.m. The course will trace the rise and fall of American slavery from 1619 through emancipation. Advanced registration and payment of $35 is required.
