Location: Salón de Actos, Espai la Senieta, Moraira (next to the large free car park)

Subject: 1492 and All That!

Lecturer: Cheda Panajotovic

1492 has become a magical number that is now seen as the dividing line between ‘The Middle Ages’ and ‘The Renaissance’. It happened to be the year in which Cristopher Columbus ‘discovered’ the lands of America and for some reason is seen as ‘the moment’.

In this talk we ask if Columbus deserves his fame and indeed if there was much more to this period in Europe’s history when the world actually DID change forever.
