Penny Lecture: Bad King John?
July 3, 2017 @ 12:00 am - September 20, 2017 @ 12:00 am
Our oldest tradition dates all the way back to when we were first founded. Listen to a lecture on an interesting and unusual topic, delivered by an expert, for just a penny.
King John is familiar to everyone as the villain from the tales of Robin Hood — greedy, cowardly, despicable and cruel. But who was the man behind the legend? Was he truly a monster, or a capable ruler cursed by ill luck? In this talk Marc Morris examines John’s career and character, and assesses the king’s actions against the standards of his own age.
