Natural History of the 16th Century and the Works of Marlowe


Marlowe’s works are well known but because the world’s natural habitats are presently under intense threat, it is timely to explore Canterbury’s master playwright concerning contemporary ideas on plants and their importance in 16th-century society. Following an exploration of contemporary books at Canterbury Cathedral Archives & Library, we will hear from speakers about a range of topics relating to Marlowe and the world of 16th-century botany.
