Anglo-Norman Reading Group

medieval network

The Anglo-Norman Reading Group are meeting during the odd weeks of Michaelmas Term 2016 at Jesus College (meet at the lodge on Turl St – NB the change of venue).

This group provides a relaxed and collaborative forum in which to read, translate and discuss a wide variety of Anglo-Norman texts.

This term we’ll be reading extracts from the Life of St Thomas Becket by Beneit of St Albans, put together for us by Katharine Handel. The selected passages will be provided in hard copy in sessions and will also be available online in advance via the group Dropbox folder.

Refreshments will be provided and our final meeting of the term on 25th November will be followed by our termly dinner.

No previous experience of Anglo-Norman is required: all are very welcome!
