About this event
Canon Professor Joyce Hill
Emeritus Professor, University of Leeds
Member of the Chapter of Ripon Cathedral
The series begins with Professor Hill showing us the many different ways in which Wilfrid brought the international world to Ripon. These were pioneering developments with a very clear purpose — the living out of Wilfrid’s commitment to the universal church.
As we celebrate the 1350 anniversary of our crypt, built by St Wilfrid in 672, we also celebrate his role in the spread of Christianity in England and on the continent. And so, as part of this special year, we are taking the opportunity to explore Wilfrid’s national and international importance in a series of four talks which draw upon the latest research.
Join us to look outwards from Ripon to ‘Wilfrid’s World’. Register here: Eventbrite
Each of our speakers has researched and published on Wilfrid and his rich network of colleagues and associates, patrons and protégés. Come and discover more about them in this series of free lectures, and talk to the speakers afterwards over a glass of wine.
Entrance to the Autumn Lecture Series is free but a retiring collection will be taken. Donations to support the work of Ripon Cathedral are greatly appreciated.
Doors will open at 7pm. Refreshments will be served after the conclusion of the lecture.
