This week sees the first symposium for the Ordered Universe project as part of the programme under the new AHRC grant. It will examine Grosseteste’s treatises On the Liberal Arts (De artibus liberalibus) On the Generation of Sounds (De generatione sonorum) and the Middle English translation and exposition of both The Seven Liberal Arts. On Friday 27th, Dr Giles Gasper will give a public lecture ‘Order, the Universe and Everything’ exploring Grosseteste’s earlier life, his interests in sound, colour and light, and the purposes towards which he conceived learning as directed. The lecture is free and open to all: please book a place here. It takes place in the Ken Wade Theatre, Calman Learning Centre on the University Science Site. It will start at 5.30 pm, and is introduced by Professor John O’Brien, Director of the Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies.
