The Ordered Universe team are always keen to spread the word about our favourite medieval thinker and scientist Robert Grosseteste and we’ve recently been able to do just that as part of the TEDx lecture series.
Dr Jack Cunningham is a church historian with a special interest in late medieval ecclesiastical history and philosophy, particularly (luckily for us!) the 13th century scientist, philosopher, and theologian Robert Grosseteste. Jack recently gave a TEDx talk entitled ‘Robert Grosseteste and the Medieval Light Fantastic’ and you can watch it below.
The talk covers aspects of medieval philosophy, theology, history, astronomy, and physics and is well worth a listen. We hope you enjoy it!
