The Age of Reason, Religion and Ridicule in the Library of the Revd David Hughes (c.1704-77)
Focussing on the science and theology of Isaac Newton and his Cambridge followers, this exhibition traces the path to modernity forged in 18th-century Queens’ through the recently catalogued collection of Revd. David Hughes (Queens’ Fellow (1727-77) & Vice President). Assisted by astronomical, religious, and profane imagery in Hughes’s pamphlets and books, the exhibition juxtaposes the big questions of Man, Society and Creation as posed in 18th-Century Cambridge with their portrayal in scurrilous satire of the period.
Thursday 22 – Friday 30 November 2018.

The library is situated on the first floor of an historic building. Regrettably, due to the age of the building, there is no lift access to the library. Access through the War Memorial Library.
