The Ordered Universe programme for the public symposium, 18th November 2014, and for the Ushaw College Lecture is now available here. There will of course be paper versions for the day itself, as well as a resources pack with translations of the treatises, and a guide to the experiments we will follow. Tickets are still available for both the symposium and the Ushaw Lecture, the latter organised by the Centre for Catholic Studies, whose partnership we are very grateful to enjoy. For the symposium collect tickets from the World Heritage Visitor Centre, for the Ushaw Lecture contact Dr James Kelly, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to introducing Grosseteste to you all.
