26th Henry Bickley Memorial Lecture delivered by Professor Stephen Milner
St Hugh’s was delighted to host the 26th Bickley Memorial Lecture on Tuesday 21st May, which was given this year by Professor Stephen Milner, Director of the British School at Rome.
Professor Milner was introduced by the Principal, the Rt Hon Dame Elish Angiolini DBE QC, and gave a fascinating and very well-received lecture on the subject, ‘Dante Monumentale: the politics of publishing The Divine Comedy in 1911’.
The Bickley Lecture was established by Professor Olga Bickley, who was a Fellow of St Hugh’s College, in memory of her father, Henry Rowlatt Bickley.
The first Bickley Lecture was first given by Sir Kenneth Clark, in 1964 and takes place every other year.
