Henry Bennet, earl of Arlington and his world: conference programme announced

Henry Bennet, earl of Arlington, was one of the foremost figures at the court of Charles II. Rising from being the second son of a Middlesex gentleman to secretary of state, lord chamberlain and a member of the House of Lords, Arlington’s career embraced diplomacy, parliamentary politics and patronage of the arts. In spite of this he is perhaps the least well known member of the infamous CABAL. Now, just over a hundred years since the publication of the principal study of Arlington’s life, a new conference organized by Dr Coleman Dennehy and Dr Robin Eagles will seek to reappraise his importance.

The conference will take place at University College London on Saturday 19 November 2016. The conference programme and details on how to register are now available to download here.
