St Albans and the Cult of Humfrey, Duke of Gloucester A talk by Dr David Rundle, University of Oxford, held jointly by St Albans Cathedral and the Friends

Thursday 15th November, Drinks 7.30pm, Talk 7.45 – c. 9.30pm.  Tickets £9.00  Venue: Crossing, St Albans Cathedral (please click link for map)

Humfrey, duke of Gloucester (1390-1447) liked to call himself the son, brother and uncle of kings. A politically divisive figure, early in 1447, while heir presumptive to the throne, he was arrested on an accusation of treason. He died in custody. His name was not forgotten, however, and one place where he was especially remembered was St Albans Abbey.  This lecture will explore Humfrey’s career, his literary patronage, and afterlife.

We Will Remember Them: Vaughan Williams’ Secret Salute to the Dead of the Great War
