The Department of Art History & World Art Studies at UEA announces their annual Martindale Lecture 2022.
CROWNING WILLIAM THE CONQUEROR: ARCHBISHOP STIGAND AND THE TIBERIUS PSALTER
Prof Sandy Heslop (UEA)
Thursday 12 May 2022, 17:30 BST, Lecture Theatre 4, UEA (and online)
“1066 was a momentous year in English history: two invasions, two bloody battles, and two coronations. The trauma has been written into the national narrative ever since, but we rarely have much insight into the mentality of the individuals involved. The Tiberius Psalter offers an exception, illuminating the character and predicament of Archbishop Stigand of Canterbury, a leading player in the drama.”
The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception to toast Prof. Heslop on his retirement from the department.
Registration is now open on EventBrite.
