The Extraordinary Genius of Sir Christopher Wren
The Extraordinary Genius of Sir Christopher Wren
Saturday 8th September 2018 at 7.30pm
Digby Memorial Church Hall, Digby Road, Sherborne
 
Wren was quite simply the greatest architect that Britain has ever known. But he was more than that. A founder of the Royal Society, he mapped the moon and the stars, investigated the problem of longitude and the rings of Saturn, and carried out groundbreaking experiments into the circulation of the blood. Adrian Tinniswood OBE FSA shows us the man behind the legend. And he shows why Wren remains a cultural icon, both a creation and a creator of the world in which he lived. 
 
Adrian Tinniswood OBE FSA is Senior Research Fellow in Architectural History at the University of Buckingham and the author of fourteen books, including His Invention So Fertile: A Life of Christopher Wren.
