The Private Lives of the Saints: Power, Passion and Politics in Anglo-Saxon England

In this lecture Dr Janina Ramirez, cultural historian, broadcaster and author, explores the intersecting lives of everyone from Bede to Alfred the Great to create a portrait of men and women in the Anglo-Saxon period who were able to represent a kind of celebrity, both in their own day and centuries later when they would be canonised, often for political ends.
