A Tale of Two Cities
After reading Dickens' novel of the same name, we travel from the first city, London, to Paris, the second, to explore its connections to the French Revolution. The novel, one of Dickens' shorter books, is a great introduction to one of London's most famous authors. Guest speakers TBA. Our trip to Paris takes place Thursday-Saturday, 28-30 March 2019. Classes run on Wednesdays, 27 February to 10 April, 10 am-12 noon, at St. Mark’s Church, Hamilton Terrace NW8. Course cost: £400 (trip not included).
Myth and Magic in England, 600-800AD
Let’s immerse ourselves in the myth and magic of the Camelot of Saxon England—Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and King Arthur, with all the mystery that surrounds them. We’ll read The Book of English Magic, as well as the poem Sir Gawain and the Green Night by the mysterious 'Pearl Poet.' Together, we'll discover ancient roots and magic wands, magicians, Wyrdcraft and the Holy Grail. This is a time when Christian England—both Celtic and Roman—clashed with ancient pagan faiths. Guest speakers TBA. Our trip takes place in April 2019—dates TBC. We may travel to Glastonbury to explore the origins of Camelot; or to Wales, a place of magic through the ages; or to Cornwall, to the Witchcraft Museum. Classes run on Thursdays, 28 February to 11 April 2019, 12:15-2:30 pm, at St. Mark’s Church, Hamilton Terrace NW8. Course cost: £400 (trip not included).
