81. FRANCIS BACON AND EDWARD COKE: THE WINDING STAIR
Friday 30th June 15:45 (60 Min)
Evelyn Partners Tent
Jesse Norman will reveal the bitter struggle for influence and power between the brilliant scholar Francis Bacon and the great lawyer Edward Coke. Bringing to life the parliaments and courts of Elizabethan and Jacobean England, he will examine two of the founders of our modern world while also exploring byways of modern law and science. It is an epic tale of jealousy and intrigue which, in its lowest moments, holds a darkened mirror to our own contemporary politics.
