Lincoln Book Festival: Sacred & Profane

Lincoln Drill Hall, Freeschool Lane, LN2 1EY

Share:

Chair: Professor Philippa Hoskin


ALISON WEIR and SARAH GRISTWOOD on Queens and Power

Alison and Sarah discuss the theme of queenship and the exercise of power by female rulers. They will be focusing on Norman queens of England, the subject of Alison's new book, QUEENS OF THE CONQUEST, and Anne Boleyn, about whom she has just published a novel, and comparing them to queens in the intervening centuries. Sarah’s latest book is GAME OF QUEENS.

JANINA RAMIREZ on Skullduggery, Power Struggles – and Saints!

Janina is well known as an art historian and for her BBC4 series (Saints & Sinners, Illuminations and Chivalry & Betrayal). In her latest book THE PRIVATE LIVES OF THE SAINTS: POWER, PASSION AND POLITICS IN ANGLO-SAXON ENGLAND she explores the real lives of over a dozen notable saints, the importance of veneration and taking them from their heavenly status to the human level. "Ramirez blasts a powerful spotlight into the so-called Dark Ages and reveals a vibrant world, awash with colour and character." (Dan Snow)
