2/9/2019 - The World of St. Patrick with Michael Norris at Southbury Public Library on March 6, 2019

On Wednesday, March 6, 2019 from 2-3:30pm, in Kingsley Room, Michael Norris will give a talk about the life and times of St. Patrick.

Get ready for St. Patrick’s Day celebration with us and learn more about St. Patrick! Through art and archaeology, we’ll examine the ancient Britain that was ruled by Rome for centuries. Then we’ll consider the autobiography and letters of its most famous citizen, a Roman Briton named Patrick, and the fifth-century Ireland he knew as a slave and as a missionary.

Mike got his BA in classics from the University of California at San Diego and his MA in classics and Ph.D. in art history at the University of California at Santa Barbara. He spent twenty years at the Cloisters Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and has lectured on trips all over the world. He lives in Teaneck, New Jersey.
