January, 7-9, 2020:
University of York, UK, Centre for Medieval Studies
Our final symposium in the current series, and we finish with Grosseteste’s final scientific treatise, the De iride, On the Rainbow. This is accompanied by the related treatise, On Colour, the paired treatises On the Nature of Places and On Lines, and the earlier treatise On Comets. All three speak to Grosseteste’s evolving interest in light, light and sight rays, and optical theory. We are delighted to be hosted by the Centre for Medieval Studies, University of York for this symposium.
