Archbishop Wulfstan and his Anglo-Saxon World, Conference

Date / time: 24 March - 25 March, All day

Two-day Historical Conference with internationally renowned experts at Worcester Cathedral

In 2023 we commemorate the 1000th anniversary of the death of Wulfstan, Bishop of Worcester (1002-16), Archbishop of York (1002-23), and revered uncle of St Wulfstan (1062-95).

Join us for two unique days of learning about Archbishop Wulfstan and the Anglo-Saxon world in which he lived. Archbishop Wulfstan was one of the most powerful bishops in the history of Worcester Cathedral. He was a major player in the turbulent politics of the reign of King Æthelred the Unready and King Cnut.

Eight internationally-known scholars will speak about Wulfstan’s life, writings, political influence, and the crucial role he played in the early history of Worcester. The lectures will be held in the historic setting of the Old Palace, once the residence of the Bishops of Worcester. One of the oldest buildings in the city, it has hosted royalty through the ages.

Tickets for the conference cost £160 per person for the two days, including eight lectures, tea, coffee and a light lunch each day, a tour of the Cathedral and/or a tour of the Mediaeval Library with its manuscript treasures, a short dramatic recitation of highlights of Wulfstan’s preaching and an evening reception with drinks and canapes. The conference dinner can also be booked at an additional cost of £35 per person.
