The Cult of the Book

Speaker(s): Professor Brian Cummings (English, York)

In this Inaugural Lecture of the Friends of the University of York Library and Archives Professor Cummings will re-examine 400 years of the relationship between the worship of idols and the worship of books, and the way we view books both as 'things' and as visual signs.
