Nicholas Fogg will speak to us on Tuesday 19 April at 7.30 on the subject of his new book: Forgotten Englishman: Thomas Stephens and the Mission to the East. Forgotten Englishman concerns the remarkable Jesuit mission to the East in the 16th century. The book is based around the life of Thomas Stephens, a missionary priest from Wiltshire. After study in Rome, he sailed to Goa aboard a Portuguese carrack: the first Englishman to sail around the Cape of Good Hope, leaving an account of the voyage. The Zoom information is below.
