Illuminated manuscripts at Canterbury’ Talk and Afternoon Tea – Thursday 24th May
Cressida Williams, Head of Canterbury Cathedral Archives and Library, will give a fascinating talk about the finely decorated (‘illuminated’) manuscripts in the Cathedral’s collections, focusing on medieval items, but including a few more modern examples. Discussing the production of the manuscripts and the history of their curation, Cressida will also touch on manuscripts produced in Canterbury but now in collections elsewhere.’ A very interesting talk, followed by a Full Afternoon Tea in the Refectory Restaurant.
