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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope that those of you who attended yesterday’s talk enjoyed the exhibitions and the stories about Greek gods, heroes, satyrs, nymphs and the odd abandoned princess.
For those who couldn’t make it or didn’t pick up a copy of the text and exercises yesterday, you can download and print them off for free here. Please remember that any included images are copyrighted.
I will publish the date for the next talk as soon as possible. I can already tell you that it will be towards the end of August.
