Medieval and early modern people were fascinated with the heavens. In an illustrated talk, Andrew Lynch explores the nature of the early cosmos in religious, philosophical and scientific thought, and its influence on literature and the arts, with effects lasting until present day.

Andrew Lynch is Emeritus Professor in English and Literary Studies at UWA, and former Director of the ARC Centre for the History of Emotions. His recent publications include, as co-editor, A Cultural History of Emotions, 6 vols, (Bloomsbury, 2019).

This public lecture is presented by the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery and the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence of the History of Emotions.
