Wednesday Lecture, on Zoom and at the British Institute Library
by Jason Houston
Eminent scholar of Italian medieval literature, Dr Jason Houston, shares some new research on how the various monuments (statues, portraits) of Dante to be found in Florence tell the story of his (mis)treatment by the Florentines. This insightful and entertaining talk offers a compelling mixture of literary and cultural history to explore the complex relationship between Dante and Florence in the 700 years since his death in exile.
