Sibfords History Society – The Light of the World

Our speaker Lizzy Rowe’s subject is Keble College and The Light of the World by Holman Hunt.

Lizzy looks at the origins of Keble College and tells some of the fascinating stories about its early days, focusing in particular on The Light of the World, the famous painting by William Holman Hunt that hangs in its Chapel.

Lizzy teaches art history and leads guided tours of Oxford city centre and the Ashmolean Museum.

The Society’s Annual General Meeting will be held at 7pm before the talk.
