Medieval mystic will be talk of the church
Bishop Street Methodist Church in Leicester is holding another of its Talks in the Chapel series.
After talks on Richard III, Christmas carols and the 50th anniversary of the religious best-seller Honest to God, the next topic will be Hildegard of Bingen, the medieval mystic.
Hildegard was an independent thinker and artist who led a convent of nuns in Rupertsberg, in the Rhineland. She wrote poetry, composed songs, drew pictures and wrote about medicine and natural history.
The talk will be on Thursday, July 4, between 6.15pm and 7.15pm. Admission is free.
