CHRISTOPHER HERBERT Tuesday 14 May 2019

Christopher Herbert is the former Bishop of St Albans. He has a MPhil and PhD in Art History and has been awarded two honorary doctorates. He has lectured at the National Gallery, the Courtauld Institute, Westminster Abbey and at the University Of Rikkyo in Japan.

The Hotel-Dieu at Beaune was created by Nicholas Robin one of the most powerful men in Europe in the C15.

What stories lay behind this masterpiece? What can we learn about van Der Weyden’s 'Last Judgement' in the main ward? What light can this shed on the medieval way of life?
