Description

Introducing Dante: his world, life and works.

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.  


This first meeting in the 2019-2020 series will be followed by public readings on Monday evenings in the spring and summer terms in partnership with University College London, presented by Alessandro Scafi (Warburg), John Took (UCL), and occasionally by Tabitha Tuckett (UCL).

Attendance is free of charge but please register in advance.
