On Monday 25 March at the Inner Temple Professor Michelle O’Callaghan, Director of the Early Modern Research Centre and author, will talk about Law Sports: Revelling at the Elizabethan and Jacobean Inns of Court.
The grand Christmas revels performed at the Inns of Court were spectacular events. They have proved to be a very rich resource for cultural historians seeking to understand how a civic identity took shape at the Inns in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This lecture will explore the range of individuals and professions that took part in these revels in order to re-assess our understanding of the early modern Inns of Court as a community.
The lecture will start at 6pm in the Parliament Chamber and will be followed by a drinks reception.
Tickets: Members and public: £10.25 (IT Students free).
