Morley Medieval Guest Lecture: The Monuments at Trier

Numer 7 in a series of talks about Constantine the Great. Guest speaker: (Vernissage) Barrie Singleton (Head of Art History, Morley College).


It is very likely there is going to be a series of celebrations and exhibitions concerning Constantine the Great over the next few decades. He is responsible for the greatest change in the recorded history of Europe so far: the adoption and patronage by the Roman establishment of the Christian religion. He was acclaimed emperor by his troops in York on the death of his father in 306. His father's main residence had been at Trier and Constantine must have spent much time there both during and after his father's life, before he crossed the Alps with an army in 312 eventually to defeat his western rival outside Rome at the "Battle of the Milvian Bridge". It was in 313 that he met with his ally in the East, Licinius, in Milan. Constantinople was founded in 324 and dedicated in 330. The first ecumenical council was held at Nicaea (Iznik as now) in 325. Constantine's mother, Helena, visited the Holy Land in 326/7. Constantine finally died in 337, but then there come the Successors to Constantine!

The series of talks makes no claims to be comprehensive, but is intended to stimulate interest and provide information on this period of fundamental importance.

Location: the Holst Room. Tickets: £3.30 on the door. For more information call: 020 7450 1934/1851.
