Anglo Saxon saints in Evensong focus

Professor Joyce Hill.
The lives and experiences of the great saints of the northern kingdom of Anglo-Saxons come under the spotlight in Ripon Cathedral's Evensong sermons during Lent.

The services will focus on the saints who established Christianity in the north of England and who are commemorated in and around the cathedral.

Professor Joyce Hill, an international authority on Anglo-Saxon England and a member of the cathedral chapter, will preach for each of the five Sundays of Lent, beginning on 17 February with St Aiden and finishing on 17 March with St Wilfred.
