Overview

Professor Lisa Jardine CBE, Advisor on the Royal Society's Collections

This year sees the 300th anniversary of the topping out of St Paul's. This talk shows how the cathedral is a monument to a mathematician and scientist at the dawn of the Enlightenment, and looks at the changing career of England's foremost architect, already over 30 when he was appointed Royal Surveyor by Charles II.
