The Protestant Cemetery in Rome

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 8th May 2019

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.

Cost: £8
