How do I use this calendar?

You can click on an event to display further information about it.

The toolbar above the calendar has buttons to view different events. Use the left and right arrow icons to view events in the past and future. The button inbetween returns you to today's view. The button to the right of this shows a mini-calendar to let you quickly jump to any date.

The dropdown box on the right allows you to see a different view of the calendar, such as an agenda or a termly view.

If this calendar has tags, you can use the labelled checkboxes at the top of the page to select just the tags you wish to view, and then click "Show selected". The calendar will be redisplayed with just the events related to these tags, making it easier to find what you're looking for.

Study Day: 'East Meets West: Medieval and Renaissance Encounters'

The day will allow us to examine religious, cultural, economic and intellectual contact between the East and West in a variety of contexts, from Byzantium to China. What kind of religious artefacts did the crusaders take from Constantinople on the Fourth Crusade? What kind of visual riddles did Orthodox icons present to the viewer? What were the differences and similarities between Protestant and Catholic missions to the East and what did Protestants and Catholics think about building up colonial empires? How was the study of astronomy in the West influenced by missionary encounters in China in the 17th and 18th centuries?
