The Wisdom of the Greeks

Michael Wood gives a lecture on The Wisdom of the Greeks


An evening with Michael Wood

To accompany our Greek Manuscripts in the British Library conference, Michael Wood gives a lecture on The Wisdom of the Greeks. He looks at how the legacy of Greece and Byzantium in science, religion and literature was transmitted to the Latin West. He tells fascinating stories about texts and ideas, scribes and scholars and brings them to life in the course of this illustrated talk that includes Anglo-Saxon kings, Crusader knights and Renaissance humanists - and even a well-known Elizabethan dramatist!
