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.

It is rare to find a venue - and an audience - so thoroughly dedicated to the enjoyment culture and cultivation of the mind as Dillington House and its visitors. As someone who hasn't lived in Britain for the past two decades, Dillington was also a delightful reminder of the beauties of English landscape and rural architecture. It was a pleasure to speak there and I envy those who can visit frequently.
