Dante’s Illumination: An Introduction to the Divine Comedy with Mark Vernon via Zoom – 27 April 2021 – 6.30-8.00pm – £10
This year, 2021, is the 700th anniversary of the death of Dante, the author of the great Divine Comedy. It is a towering work in western spirituality, which can make it intimidating.

So what might he illuminate for us now?
These run once a month on a Thursday from 7-8 pm (UK time) by Zoom. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for dates.
