About This Benefit Lecture
Saint Boniface (ca. 675-754), born in Southern England as "Winfrid," became the most significant early missionary to the people of Germany. He is sometimes credited with creating the vision for the "Holy Roman Empire" of the medieval period and the notion of a "Christian Europe." In this Benefit Lecture, we will explore the sites and artifacts of his missionary work and reflect on the question of his enduring legacy.
This Benefit Lecture will take place on Thursday, May 9, 2024, from 2:00-3:00pm (UTC- 05:00; New York City time).
