Talk series inspired by Dippy

15 July 2021
Join us every week for Talkative Tuesdays, a series of talks, lectures and discussions inspired by Dippy the Dinosaur’s visit to Norwich Cathedral. The talks will focus on the encounter between faith and science through the ages, ranging from accounts of Creation in the Bible to mediaeval monasteries to today’s climate crisis.
