Bartholomew Ruspini: Introducing the generous dentist

The generous dentist Bartholomew Ruspini revolutionised 18th-century dental care and introduced new charities to freemasonry and beyond.

Museum of Freemasonry’s new exhibition Generous Dentist focuses on the life and times of Bartholomew Ruspini, freemason, philanthropist and dentist to 18th-century society.

Join Susan Snell, Archivist and Records Manager to find out more about this charismatic and sociable Italian. Ruspini revolutionised English dental care and set up a new charity to help children of freemasons with health or financial problems. His legacies include setting up the present-day Royal Masonic School for Girls and freemasonry’s annual fundraising festival scheme.

Listen as Susan sweeps you back to 18th-century London: trendy turtle dinners, a lottery for a Michelangelo cabinet, managing royal patrons and an opera singer in prison all appear in this entertaining talk.

This live webinar is free to all and hosted on Zoom.
