Sigbjørn Sønnesyn will be delivering a talk in Durham this week, on subjects related to the background to Grosseteste’s intellectual formation. Speaking in the Medieval Mind Lecture Series organised by Dr Thomas Ball and Dr Sara Uckelman, of the Philosophy Department at Durham, Sigbjørn’s paper is entitled:
‘Words Incarnate: Spirituality, Experience and Epistemology in Twelfth-Century Thought’.
The talk takes place on Thursday 28th January in Engineering Room 102, between 15.00 and 16.30. All are welcome, for what is sure to be a fascinating discussion of 12th century knowledge and conceptual frameworks. And all very much relevant to the later pastoral, preaching and intellectual projects of Grosseteste. If you are in Durham or environs, we’d be delighted to see you.
