Sir Christopher Wren: Architect & Courtier

Sir Christopher Wren’s success was underpinned by his consummate skill as a courtier, retaining the confidence of four monarchs through social and economic disasters and political revolution. Wren's life at court can be minutely reconstructed and shows a man who was first and foremost a courtier serving the architectural whims of the Stuart dynasty. Taking Wren the courtier as its starting point this lecture uses new research to paint his talents and career in a new light.
