Research Talk: Andrew Wallace on “The Fact of Rome”

Prof. Andrew Wallace will be giving a Research Talk on “The Fact of Rome” on Friday, December 5th, at 3pm in the Gordon Wood Lounge.

This talk explores a series of expressions of ancient Rome’s nearness and availability to those who lived in its wake in Medieval and early modern England. In writers ranging from Medieval monks, such as Gildas and Bede, to Edmund Spenser, Sir Thomas Browne, and John Milton, encounters with the fact of Rome are interpretable as encounters with the self made strange and as meditations on the order of the ordinary.
