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 18 June, Professor Nicholas Vincent, from the University of East Anglia, will give a talk entitled Jews, Deer Parks, and the Holy Blood: England and Normandy in the Life and Letters of Herbert Losinga

Professor Nicholas Vincent works for the most part on the history of the 12th and 13th centuries, mostly but not exclusively Anglo-French, with particular interests in charters, kingship, relics and the interface between political and intellectual history. He is presently engaged in a major project to publish the charters of the Plantagenet kings of England, from Henry II onwards. 

This free lecture will be in the Weston Room at 7pm.

Other 7pm lectures in the series include:

The Rule of St Benedict and its Variations: Anglo-Saxon Monasticism
