Medieval Salisbury talk poster
7.30pm Medieval Salisbury and Modernity - a talk by Jon Cannon. Salisbury is world famous for its medieval cathedral, still an active place of worship 800 years after it was built. But the debt the modern world owes this great work of architecture, and the other cathedrals of the medieval world, goes much deeper than that. This talk will reveal their unsung role as crucibles of modernity.
The talk will be in the Cavell Room of Sarum College in The Close, Salisbury. Tickets are £9 in advance from Sarum Books, £10 on the door.
