Music, Masonry and Manuscripts: An Inspirational Journey Through Medieval England with Mark Cottle
Friday 6 March 1.00pm
Tickets £25 (three-course lunch & lecture)
The music, architecture and manuscript illumination of medieval England are among the greatest achievements of any period of English cultural history. The aim of the lecture is to open a window onto this remarkable world to capture something of the essence of its religion and secular music, its Romanesque and Gothic cathedrals and its equally rich span of manuscript illumination, both sacred and profane. Essentially inspirational and aspirational, these are forms of artistic endeavour which can touch the sublime.
Mark Cottle was born in the Scilly Isles, educated at Truro School in Cornwall and was a graduate of Birmingham University with a Masters Degree in late Medieval History. Mark has spent over 20 years lecturing in Anglo-Saxon, Medieval and Tudor history in further and higher education.
