The Monastic History of North East Yorkshire

Lucy Beckett

This part of Yorkshire has a monastic history of nearly fourteen centuries, although there were breaks in the story inflicted by invasions, politics, religious upheavals and destruction. The talk will tell the whole story from the time of St Hilda and St Cedd to the present day, and will describe a number of remarkable monastic lives, including those of notable saints and martyrs, and a few villains, at different times and places. Lucy Beckett, who lives at Rievaulx, has written and lectured on this subject for many years.

Venue – The Library, Malton School, Middlecave Road, Malton

Time:   7.30
