Catholic Archives

The next seminar of the UCL Centre for Early Modern Exchanges will take place on Wed 28 Nov. Our subject is 'Catholic Archives', and we're delighted to have two extraordinary speakers: Jan Graffius, archivist of Stonyhurst College; and Father Peter Harris, archivist of the English College at Valladolid. They're each custodians of remarkable collections of documents and relics which shed light on early modern English identity from an alternative and internationalist angle. Their subjects are as follows:

Jan Graffius: Bullworks Against Heresie': Some Relics from the Sodality at St Omers
Fr Peter Harris: 'And did those feet in ancient time ...': The archives of exile: the holdings of the Royal English College, Valladolid, Spain
Alison Shell will be in the chair. It should be a fascinating seminar, and we hope you can join us. We meet at 4.30pm on Wed 28 Nov, in Foster Court 114, UCL. For maps and directions, please see more on the UCL Centre for Early Modern Exchanges, please see
