NCCL: Who was William of Norwich?
Sat 25 Mar 2023 at 10.00 am - 12.30 pm
St Francis, Norwich, Norwich, Norfolk, NR7 9UQ
A morning investigating the story of William of Norwich.
William was a 13-year-old boy found murdered on Mousehold Heath in 1144, but his death led to the ‘blood libel’ against the Jews which has resonated down the centuries. The session will be held at the Church of St Francis Heartsease, close to Mousehold Heath, and the morning will conclude with a visit to the site where William’s body was found.
Led by the Revd Canon Dr Peter Doll
