The Annual ILCR ‘Law and Literature’ Lecture will take place on Monday 17 April, at 5.15pm in Parliament Hall.
‘Thomas Hobbes and the Norman Conquest’ Professor George Garnett, (University of Oxford)
The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception.
Professor Garnett is a medievalist with interests ranging well into the early modern period. He has published a large study of the impact of the Norman Conquest on notions of kingship, succession, and tenure; a briefer introduction to the Conquest; and several essays on these and related themes. He also works on political thought in a more conventional sense: he has published an edition of Vindiciae, contra tyrannos, the highly influential sixteenth-century Huguenot resistance treatise, and a study of the role of providential history in the thought of the fourteenth-century Italian theorist and anti-papal publicist, Marsilius of Padua.
