Description:
How do you read? Drowning in never-ending email? Rapidly devouring whodunnits, then immediately forgetting them? Perhaps you are seduced by clickbait or read the news and get depressed? Do you cherry-pick political statements to find only what you want to hear, then suspiciously pick apart whatever the other side says? The ways we read today are often unhealthy. But there is another way. Medieval monks used to read slowly with body, heart and soul. Find out how and try it for yourself. Join Dr Daphne Loads (University of Edinburgh) for some divine reading.
