Join the Royal College of Physicians for a special free evening event devoted to the remarkable Sir Thomas Browne.

Hear a talk on the famous 17th century polymath by leading expert Dr Kevin Killeen, and take the final opportunity for a late visit to the acclaimed exhibition ‘A cabinet of rarities’: the curious collections of Sir Thomas Browne’.

Collector of curiosities, debunker of myths, inspiration to writers and doctors alike, coiner of words, owner of a live ostrich and expert witness at a witch trial. Sir Thomas Browne is probably the greatest British genius the vast majority of British people have never even heard of.

He was also a renowned physician, wrote some of the most beautiful prose in English and has long figured in the history of medicine and the humanities.

Agenda:

6.30pm: arrival and exhibition viewing
7pm: talk with Dr Kevin Killeen
8pm: drinks reception and exhibition viewing

Advance booking is essential, see website for details and to reserve a place, or email history@rcplondon.ac.uk.
