Norwich Cathedral is marking the 900th anniversary of the death of its founder, Bishop Herbert de Losinga, with a series of free lectures looking at his life and times.

On Tuesday 16 July, Professor Nigel Morgan, from the University of Cambridge, will give a talk entitled The Liturgical Manuscripts of Norwich Cathedral Priory and Diocese c.1200-1500.

Professor Nigel Morgan’s main research interests are late medieval English illuminated and liturgical manuscripts, with a special interest in Apocalypses and the iconography of devotional images. He also works on medieval stained glass and is preparing the Corpus Vitrearum Medii Aevi for the county of Kent.
