La Divina Commedia, Dante Alighieri:  In Quest of Paradise. An Illustrated talk in English by Caroline Clarke

A masterpiece of medieval literature! Ground-breakingly written in Italian not Latin. Beloved of the people. A political satire of the day exposing corruption in Church & State. But most of all a love story to equal that of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet & the tale of a journey into the darkest realms of the psyche in quest of freedom & spiritual illumination. Join us as we peer into the mystery of Dante’s greatest work.

Cost: Free for members, £3 for non-members
