    John Martyn

    This free public lecture will focus on an extraordinary illuminated manuscript - made up of forty one letters by Pope Gregory the Great - which is one of a significant group of Latin manuscripts held in the collection of the Ian Potter Museum of Art.

    Associate Professor John Martyn has recently published a book on this exciting find. In this lecture, he will analyse this Gregorian manuscript in some detail - including his suggestions as to its most likely place and date of production, as well as an examination of the manuscript's highly unusual capital letters.
