In 2016 the famous Protestant Cemetery in Rome celebrated 300 years of continuous use by the City’s foreign community.
It has frequently been painted by local and visiting artists, often following a commission from a bereaved family. Their depictions, together with their written sources, throw new light on the burial-ground in the 18th-century and on the vexed question of why Protestant funerals were held at night.
The lecture will re-assess the sanctity ascribed to to the graves of poets John Keats and Percy Bysshe Shelley as the bicentennials of their deaths approach in 2021-2.
