Wild Labyrinth: Embodying the Creator of the Mappa Mundi
Wild Labyrinth: Embodying the Creator of the Mappa Mundi – Lecture by Kate Innes.
In 2019 Kate Innes began work on her third medieval novel set in 1306-7, the crossover between the reigns of Edward I & Edward II.
Very quickly Hereford Cathedral and its Mappa Mundi became central to the plot.
In this illustrated talk, Kate will explain her research into the attributed creator of the Mappa Mundi, Richard of Holdingham and Sleaford, the possible connection with 6th century writer and explorer Paulus Orosius, and how the character of the mapmaker emerged and developed in the critically acclaimed novel Wild Labyrinth.
This event will take place in College Hall and tickets, which cost £10, are available to purchase from the cathedral website.
