Description

2020 is a triple jubilee year for Thomas Becket. He was born in 1120 (at least by current scholarly surmise), he was murdered 850 years ago in Canterbury Cathedral, and his remains were translated to his shrine in 1220. In commemoration, a Roundtable will address the political, religious, cultural, ecclesiastical, material and other aspects of Becket’s life, death and afterlife. The participants are a range of scholars in various stages of their careers from the disciplines of History, Art History, English and Political Science. The Roundtable will adopt an interdisciplinary orientation and will encourage audience engagement.
