ETHELDREDA LECTURE - CANON PROFESSOR SARAH FOOT

23 June 2019 7pm

This year we celebrate St Etheldreda's Feast day with a lecture from the distinguished early medieval historian, Canon Professor Sarah Foot.

Sarah is Regius Professor of Ecclesiastical History at the University of Oxford, and a Canon of Christ Church Cathedral. Her research interests lie with the early medieval Anglo-Saxon saints, particularly women saints, and she has also worked extensively on the Venerable Bede. Her lecture will help us understand the context for St Etheldreda (Anglo-Saxon spelling and pronunciation: Aethelthryth) and for her saintly reputation and miraculous afterlife.

Professor Foot is also preaching for the Eucharist for Etheldreda's feast day, that morning at 10.30am.

Come to both and have an Etheldreda feast for the Feast of St Etheldreda! Discover more about our own saint and Founder.

Free admission.
