DANTE: WHO WAS HE?

Virtual Event – Join us Online

With Gervase Rosser, Professor of the History of Art and Director of the Ertegun Programme of Graduate Scholarships in the Humanities, Oxford University

Dante Alighieri, Florentine political exile and poet, died 700 years ago. Yet his extraordinary poem, the Comedy, still speaks as urgently to modern generations as it did to its first readers.

The talk will put into context the current Gallery 8 exhibition, curated by the speaker: ‘Dante: The Invention of Celebrity’.
