ARK – with Carole Weinberg

Sunday 19 Jan at 11:00 am

Carole Weinberg will be telling us something about the fascinating but little known figure of Licoricia of Winchester, one of the most prominent Jews of the thirteenth century. Her talk will begin with some general comments about the situation of the Jews in medieval England and will then focus on what we know regarding the eventful life and tragic death of one of the most prominent English Jewish women of her time, a moneylender and one of the wealthiest women in England.

Tea/coffee and bagels served from 10.30am
