The cusp of life and death: Sir Thomas Browne & the religion of a physician

Dr Kevin Killeen of York University explores the life and mos famous work of the 17th century polymath.


Join the Royal College of Physicians for a special free evening event devoted to the remarkable Sir Thomas Browne.

Hear a talk on the famous 17th century polymath by leading expert Dr Kevin Killeen, and take the final opportunity for a late visit to the acclaimed exhibition 'A cabinet of rarities': the curious collections of Sir Thomas Browne’.

Collector of curiosities, debunker of myths, inspiration to writers and doctors alike, coiner of words, owner of a live ostrich and expert witness at a witch trial. Sir Thomas Browne is probably the greatest British genius the vast majority of British people have never even heard of.

He was also a renowned physician, wrote some of the most beautiful prose in English and has long figured in the history of medicine and the humanities.
