Imaging The Holy Reformation,
Counter-Reformation, And The Arts

Monday 10 July 2017
Bedern Hall
An illustrated lecture by Eamon Duffy, Emeritus Professor of the History of Christianity in the University of Cambridge

The Reformation not only transformed the religious landscape of northern Europe: it also initiated a revolution in the visual and musical arts. While the Catholic Church remained committed to the transmission of gospel truth through the senses of sound, hearing, and touch, many Reformation communities believed that the primacy of God’s word as the sole means of divine self-revelation demanded a repudiation of the arts as legitimate vehicles of salvation: this talk explores some of the consequences. more..

Pictures of Perfection...Make Me Sick and Wicked
Friday 14 July 2017
Fairfax House, Castlegate, York, YO1 9RN
Jane Austen & reading for lies with Emma Major

As Austen wrote to her niece Fanny Knight, whose admirer had criticized the comportment of Austen’s heroines: ‘Pictures of Perfection, as you know, make me sick and wicked’.
In this lecture, Dr. Emma Major looks at the ways in which Austen encourages us to be suspicious of perfection, and to become better readers of character. Indeed the case could be made that Austen’s fiction offers the reader a first-rate lesson in detective skills. As P.D. James points out, detective fiction ‘does not require a murder’ but ‘does require a mystery’ – and as we’ll see, Austen provides plenty of these, continuing to inspire crime fiction writers of today.

Dr. Major (University of York) investigates Austen’s lifelong fascination with letters to show how Austen uses them to teach her heroines to become better readers of flawed human nature.

The event starts at 7.00pm.
Tickets are £14.00 and includes a post-lecture wine reception.
Booking is recommended. Tickets can be purchased prior to the event by visiting Fairfax House or calling (01904) 655543.
