Friday, 24th September, 7pm, Winchester Cathedral Presbytery- In Person or via zoom
Biblical Scholarship in England before the Norman Conquest, Professor Sarah Foot, Regius Professor of Ecclesiastical History, University of Oxford
Study of the Bible lay at the centre of religious life in the Anglo-Saxon period and underpinned the whole written culture of early medieval England. Professor Foot leads us through the times of Bede, Alfred and Æthelwold to reveal a tradition interrupted but not destroyed by the Norman Conquest.
This lecture will be of interest to all those wishing to understand how our forebears, including the monastic scholars of the Priory of St Swithun at Winchester, understood and studied the scriptures in the later part of the first millennium. Sarah Foot is author of Monastic Life in Anglo-Saxon England, c. 600–900.
