Our study of this monumental altarpiece will encompass the rich cultural, social and political context of its production and consumption during the reign of Philip the Good, continuing with an examination of its complex iconography as understood by Pre-Reformation audiences. Van Eyck's influence on his Italian contemporaries and the chequered history of the work itself will also be explored.

I love going to Dillington. Where is there like it? Arriving is like a decompression, a deep breath of pure air. The programmes of courses, concerts and talks are exceptional. The company is delightful; the food and the ambiance add to the pleasure; and all set in a magical landscape which seems to me a secret Somerset paradise. In a world of increasing dislocation, Dillington has a real sense of its place in the world. Michael Wood
