This half-day conference is being hosted in conjunction with members of The Ordered Universe Project, an international research project dedicated to the scientific works of the remarkable English thinker Robert Grosseteste (c.1170-1253).

Few figures of the Middle Ages command the attention of so many modern disciplines as Robert Grosseteste. Theology, Philosophy, History, and Science are all areas in which his life and thought continue to have significance and to inspire reinterpretation. Grosseteste was associated with Hereford for about 25 years, and studied and wrote while here.

The Ordered Universe Project has been running since 2010, and is supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Based at Durham University and the Universities of Oxford and York, the project has partners all over the world. In a mutually enriching exercise the project brings the writings of Grosseteste into dialogue with contemporary cosmologists and other scientists.

This event is part of the Life & Learning programme and will take place in College Hall. Tickets cost £20 (to include tea, coffee and biscuits) – booking is essential via the Cathedral Library on 01432 374 225/6 or by emailing [email protected]
