    Best known for his seven-book series, the Chronicles of Narnia, C. S. Lewis was a scholar and writer of exceptional ability. Today, however, the scale and variety of his contributions to literature and thought are often obscured.

Deciphering the Round Church

Deciphering the Round Church

The Round Church is one of Cambridge’s oldest and best-known buildings. It predates the University by almost a century. It is one of only four round churches still standing in the UK. It has been much loved and discussed by poets, preachers, antiquarians, and journalists down the centuries. And yet so much about its past remains a mystery. Debunking some popular stories about wandering Knights Templar, this talk, held in the beautiful setting of the Round Church itself, uncovers the far more fascinating truths that lay behind this amazing building. It looks at the foundation of the church in the early decades of the twelfth century and some of the ideas which led its founders to make it round.
