Andrew Foster (University of Kent & Lincoln College, Oxford): ‘The Restoration and Revival of Chichester Cathedral Library, 1670-1735’

May 7 at 17:30 19:00

For the redoubtable Dr Mary Hobbs, the return of Bishop Henry King’s Library marked the rebirth of Chichester Cathedral Library post 1671, yet close analysis of The Old Catalogue before 1735 reveals other stories of benefactors and books in what was quite a renaissance for cathedral, city, and the surrounding region at the end of the seventeenth century.

In association with the History of Libraries seminar series.

All are welcome, but those wishing to attend should book a free ticket via the IES website.
