10. German Talk – Follow Up

Hello everybody,

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s talk and walk around our lovely Edward Davies building, aka the School of Art.

As usual, you can download and print a copy of the talk here. 

For those who got curious and would like to read up on Freemasons’ art and architecture, these are the books which I used in my research. There are also of course many sources online:

Handbook of Freemasonry, edited by Henrik Bogdan and Joannes Augustinus Maria Snoek, published by Brill, 2014

The art & architecture of Freemasonry: an introductory study, by James Stevens Curl, published by Batsford, 2002

As I mentioned during the talk, I’m certainly no expert on Freemasonry, so I interpreted and translated the information I gathered to the best of my understanding.

For those who would like to find out more about the history of the university, this is quite and extensive source:

The University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, 1872-1972, by E. L. Ellis, published by University of Wales Press, 1972

I will announce the date for the next ‘German Talk’ as soon as possible on this blog, the EGO magazine and via email for those who have signed-up. If you would like to be included in the email list about the French and German Talks, please contact me on kaw25@aber.ac.uk.

All the best wishes,

Karen
