Talk tomorrow in Oxford and Minneapolis in November

Sorry this is rather late notice.  I am speaking tomorrow 18 October at 8.30 in the Sutro Room, Trinity College, Oxford on ancient Greek and medieval science.  The talk is a seminar for the Ian Ramsey Centre but everyone is welcome.  Do drop by if interested.

I am also giving a Faith and Life lecture at St Philip the Deacon Church in Minneapolis at 7pm on 15 November.  Again, this is a free public event.

Update: you can watch a video of the Oxford talk here.

Will the talk be recorded or streamed live? Thanks

James, if the talks are recorded could you provide links when (if) they become available?

It would be very much appreciated.

Very good talk. So in the end, it wasn't so much the scientific contribution but the philosophical contribution of the middle ages that helped start the scientific revolution. Either way, it is interesting to note things like castles, palaces, churches, cathedrals and monasteries from that time and how well built they are, which means that they had to had great knowledge in architecture, physics and mathematics to be able to build them.
