What inspired medieval men and women to give their lives to God? We will examine the lives and writings of four very different individuals: In the morning using early texts, we will explore the spirituality of St Dominic and his young follower, Catherine of Siena, and in the afternoon we will look at writings by two later Carmelite saints who were close friends, Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross.

I thoroughly enjoyed the two times that I've come to speak at Dillington House. I found the audiences to be engaged, receptive and welcoming. Somerset needs a venue like this, I hope it goes from strength to strength and I'd love to come back and speak again. Gavin Pretor-Pinney
