As part of the “Easter at King’s” festival of services and concerts for Holy Week and Easter, Dr de Hamel will give an illustrated talk about the Parker Library. This will take place at 10.00am, on Thursday 28th March, in King’s College. The exact venue is still to be confirmed, but we will post details on the two college websites and this blog as soon as we know.
The Parker Library will then be open for visitors from 11.00am – 4.00pm; the exhibition is free and there is no need to book. The exhibition will focus on archbishops, and will include the sixth century Gospel book which is used in the service at the enthronement of each new Archbishop of Canterbury. The enthronement of the new Archbishop, the Rt Rev. Justin Welby, will take place on March 21st in Canterbury Cathedral, and will be broadcast live on the BBC.
