‘The Real St Edmund’ at the Bury St Edmunds Literature Festival

This afternoon I spoke at the 2021 Bury St Edmunds Literature Festival at the Unitarian Meeting House in Bury St Edmunds, on the subject of ‘The Real St Edmund’. In the talk, I sought to separate history from hagiography in the story of St Edmund and separate fact from elaboration in our understanding of England’s patron saint. It was wonderful to return to Bury’s literary festival in person after first speaking at the festival (on ‘Holy and Unholy Suffolk‘) in 2019.
