Take a tour through the fascinating world of medieval time calculation. Find out how the calendar was structured, and time and life were organised in the Middle Ages, in a public talk and discussion in Durham Cathedral.
Dr Philipp Nothaft from All Souls College, University of Oxford, will explore medieval star-craft, and the science of time-reckoning, including the dating of Easter. The details of medieval mathematics and the beautiful diagrams in which they were presented, and the long-running arguments over how best to tell the time will all be brought to life.
