The Lecture was delivered by Dr Nicholas Hardwick, Curatorial Director of the Museum.
'The History and Culture of the Village of Toula in northern Lebanon' was about the village which is one of the focusses of the museum. This was a general lecture, and the mediaeval themes include early church history and the late Roman patron saint of the village Saint Assia (d. 400), the romanesque church in the village, and the Maronite Church and its relations to the Roman Catholic Church. This was not a research lecture, but presents the village and the museum.
