27/07/2023 at 17:30 19:00

This talk is about the Court of Arches, the ancient appeal court of the Archbishop of Canterbury, and its rich archive in Lambeth Palace Library. It outlines court procedure and the tangled lives of those who came before it, caught up in disputes about inheritance, marriage, divorce, morals, slander, church buildings, pews, rates and tithes. 

All are welcome, but those wishing to attend should book a free ticket via Eventbrite or email not later than Wednesday 26 July.
