Description

The Prince Bishops of Durham were for a thousand years the holders of near-absolute power in the north east of England and major players on the national and international stage. In a role unique within the English church, both pre and post-Reformation, they shaped the stories of the region and the nation. This session explores the lives and careers of three medieval bishops who played key roles in government. Each was central to the politics of their day, but what part did faith play - were they primarily princes or bishops?
