Description


This series aims to introduce the beauty, complexity and continuing significance of Dante’s ‘Divina Commedia’ through readings of the text, in the original and in translation, and through commentary on it. The readings are accompanied by a rich visual display of medieval illuminations whilst the commentary explores and invites discussion of some of the leading ideas of the poem.

The public readings take place weekly in the autumn, spring and summer terms at the Warburg Institute, in partnership with University College London, and are presented by Alessandro Scafi and John Took, and occasionally by Tabitha Tuckett. 

The readings will take place on Mondays from 18:00 - 19:30. View full programme here.


Attendance is free of charge and pre-registration is not required.
