Edmund Newell: The Sacramental Sea

3.00pm Thursday, 26th September 2019

Why do so many people feel a spiritual connection with the sea? Why does so much of our art, poetry and expressions of religious experience draw so heavily on imagery of its power, its wideness and its depth?

Edmund Newell, Principal of Cumberland Lodge, explores these questions in his unique and fascinating study, The Sacramental Sea. Examining our complex relationship with oceans throughout history, his fresh and thought-provoking survey guarantees to encourage us all to protect our blue planet.

Duration: 1 hour

This event is presented in partnership with the educational foundation, Cumberland Lodge, to help bring the work of the Lodge to the wider community and Festival audience
