Heaven's Above!: Medieval Time Reckoning and the Dating of Easter

Event date Event time Event location
18/11/2016 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm Durham Cathedral

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.

Admission is free, but booking is required. For more information on the event, please visit the website or call 0191 334 2222.
