Professor Roger Stalley will give a lecture entitled ‘The Book of Kells – Unfinished Business ?’ on Tuesday, 28 February, 2017, in the Swift Theatre, Room 2041, Arts Building, TCD at 3pm. Roger is Professor Emeritus of the History of Art and a member of a research group exploring a range of art historical issues associated with the Book of Kells.
His research is chiefly concerned with issues involving architecture and sculpture in the middle ages. The dissemination of Gothic in the twelfth and thirteenth century is a key interest and he is the lead investigator in a research project devoted to Gothic in Ireland, funded by the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences. He is also engaged in research on Irish sculpture of the ninth and tenth centuries, a project which extends to the role and status of the stone sculptor in the early middle ages.
