May landscape studies add to our understanding of the Christianisation of Norway?

Professor Sæbjørg Walaker Nordeide

Department of Archaeology, History, Cultural Studies and Religion - University of Bergen

In Norway, as in several other countries, both written and archaeological sources about the main period of Christianisation around AD 1000 are poor and partly unreliable. Models of Christianisation are often discussed along two main lines: that Christianisation either occurred top-down (forced) or in a gradual (peaceful) fashion. Given that it was top-down and power-based, can landscape studies add information to the question of what identified the power-scape, and consequently to our understanding of the Christianisation process?

Cello and Piano: Beyond the Score

Adrian Brendel, cello
David Dolan, piano

Cellist Adrian Brendel and pianist David Dolan return to further explore the performer’s role as creator over different musical styles. In a programme providing the performers with a scope for extemporisations and following seventeenth and eighteenth centuries performance practice, the duo will embellish repeats and improvise preludes and interludes to create the setting for the pieces performed and to connect between movements and works.

Boccherini Sonata for cello and piano 
Schumann Five pieces in Folk Style Opus 102 
Beethoven Sonata No. 3 for cello and piano in A major Opus 69
Fauré Élégie for cello and piano Opus 24

We will be holding a Clare Hall Life Members event at 5 pm on Sunday, 29 March 2020 in Salzburg. The President of Clare Hall, Professor David Ibbetson and Dr Marie Janson, Development Director, will be visiting Salzburg and would like to meet with Life Members and friends to share news from the College. We are very grateful to Professor Li Tang, who is helping to organise this event.

Please join us for some drinks and the opportunity to catch up with friends, old and new, at Cafe Bazar, Schwarzstrasse 3, Salzburg 5020, Austria.

For those who may be interested, we will continue on for dinner at 7 pm at St Peter Stiftkulinarium (famous for being the oldest restaurant in the world) and only a seven-minute walk from Café Bazar. Our host, Dr Li Tang, will give a guided walking tour of the city on the way to the restaurant. Please, note that we do ask attendees to cover costs for their own meal.

If you would like to attend, please register below by the 15 March 2020.
