Bishop Grosseteste University invites you to join us for the BGU Annual History Lecture 2019 in the Robert Hardy Building on Wednesday 15th May 2019

The Civil Wars and The Regicide 1649

British Civil Wars and the Regicide in 1649 remain defining moments for Britain and in many direct and indirect ways, such as in the Irish Border question, shaping Ireland and Britain. 370 years after the regicide, Professor John Morrill will explore Civil War and Regicide and its impact on Britain and Ireland, then and today, with specific emphasis on Lincolnshire.

Professor of British and Irish History John Morrill, FRHistS, FBA, Fellow Royal Irish Academy

John Morrill is a world-reknown leading authority on Seventeenth Century Britain, in particular the Civil Wars, the Regicide and Cromwell. He has written and edited more than twenty books and more than 100 essays, is.general-editor of the edition of all the recorded words of Oliver Cromwell and chair of the editorial board for the 8,000 survivor-statements following the massacres in Ireland in October 1641. He has been a Fellow of the British Academy and its Vice President for Public Engagement and holds Honorary Doctorates from the Universities of East Anglia, Surrey and Durham, is an Honorary Fellow of Trinity College Oxford and Trinity College Dublin and he is an Honorary Member of the Academy of Finland and the Royal Irish Academy.

The Annual History Lecture:

This event was originally established to mark the work of a historian at BG, Jim Johnston. Dr Johnston was a pioneer in the use of probate inventories. However, the main reason why a memorial lecture series began, following his death in 2007, was because he was an exceptional teacher. He came to BG in 1971, and he put down roots and became Vice-Principal. In addition to shouldering a share of college teaching, he began courses for older students, leading to the certificate and degree in local and regional studies. Thus he came into contact with innumerable students across a wide age span, and by all of them he was admired and respected.

This annual event has also come to celebrate the contribution of another former History Lecturer, Dulcie Duke, by BG’s Old Students’ Association. The occasion also marks the work of current BG students, and includes the awarding of a best history essay prize, supported by both the OSA, through the Dulcie Duke Prize, and by the Lincoln Record Society.
