This course, covering the period from the fourth to the ninth centuries will explore emergence of a specifically West European identity following the collapse of the Roman Empire in the West. There will be an emphasis on the interaction between religious, cultural and political developments and an exploration of how far modern concepts of a European identity have their origins in the historical processes that followed the end of the Roman Empire.

I came to Somerset to talk about Socrates and his search for the good life. And in many ways I found it incarnated in Dillington House. Here there is a love of beauty and truth. To find a sympathetic venue with an exquisitely rich history, open to all and encouraging debate, creativity and a passion for life is exactly the kind of thing that would have made Socrates smile. I can't wait to come back.
