Professor Joyce Hill talk: In and under the Vatican.
In recent years, Professor Hill has had the privilege of staying within the Vatican and visiting the excavations beneath St. Peter’s.
The first part of the talk gives a view of this city-state outlining its history. The second part explores the excavations, showing Constantine’s fourth Century basilica and how the present St. Peter’s relates both to the earlier basilica and the excavations.
At Leeds, Professor Hill has been Director of the Centre for Medieval Studies, Professor of Old and Middle English Language and Literature, and Pro-Vice-Chancellor, becoming Emeritus Professor in 2008. She has been recognised for her work in Higher Education.
