Queen of Sheba Chris Bradley Monday 11 November 2019

She is one of the most intriguing and exotic figures in history.

Three thousand years ago the Queen of Sheba travelled through the Arabian desert with a caravan of hundreds of camels laden with unimaginable riches to meet King Solomon in far-off Jerusalem.  

Our two lectures will tell the queen's story through texts from Christian, Jewish and Islamic sources.  We will discover where she came from, the nature of her rule and why her legend has endured throughout the centuries.

This Day of Special Interest with lecturer Chris Bradley will take place at the Headgate Theatre, Colchester CO2 7AT, on Monday 11th November, 2019.  Further details and a booking form will be available in the autumn.
