Project Details


Part of the AHRC/ESRC-funded Religion and Society Programme, this project investigates the spiritual possibilities of the present by rescuing a neglected poem, one of the great epics of English literature, Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene.

It involves Royal Holloway, University of London; the University of Oxford; Manchester Cathedral;The College of St George, Windsor Castle; The Windsor Festival; Shakespeare’s Globe; Poet in the City; Cumberland Lodge; Bishop David Brown School; and George Mitchell School.

And it will be of interest to poets, writers and readers as well as scholars and those of all faiths and none, who hunger for beauty, meaning and value.
