Cambridge professor of the history of medieval art, Paul Binski, sheds new light on one of the greatest periods of English art and architecture, offering ground-breaking arguments about the role of invention and the powers of Gothic art. By examining notions of what was extraordinary, re-evaluating medieval ideas of authorship, and restoring economic considerations to the debate, Binski sets English visual art of the early 14th century in a broad European context and within the aesthetic discourses of the medieval period.

This will be a fascinating evening with a true expert. Binksi will especially be talking about our amazing local landmark, Ely Cathedral.
