The Friends of Count Magnus – “Through a Glass Darkly”

September 26, 2018 - September 27, 2018

Did you know that the master of the English ghost story, M.R. James, was a devoted admirer of Sherlock Holmes?

Three present-day Holmesian scholars – Paul M. Chapman, Teresa Dudley and Dr Mark Jones – have organised a two-day M.R. James Conference in their home city of York.
The event, entitled Through A Glass Darkly, will take place on Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th September 2018 and will focus particularly on James’s 1898 visit to York to examine the stained glass of many of the city’s mediaeval parish churches.
Remaining tickets are limited but anyone who has an interest in MRJ, ghost stories and/or church architecture would be most welcome to attend!
