ABOUT RAMON LLULL AND THE LLULL YEAR
Ramon Llull (c. 1232 – c. 1316) was one of the primary writers and thinkers of the Middle Ages in Europe. No other Catalan author has exerted similar influence, either geographically or across time. His wide-ranging interests were such that he made notable contributions to every area of the knowledge of his day, from philosophy and theology to law, medicine, astronomy, rhetoric and logic. At the same time, Llull produced a substantial body of literary work that includes emblematic titles which place him at the very start of the Catalan literary tradition.
The celebration of Llull Year in 2016, commemorating the seventh centenary of his death, will provide an opportunity to showcase the importance of Ramon Llull’s contribution to the world of letters and to draw the attention to the extent to which his thinking has influenced numerous European intellectuals, an influence that continues to this day.
The events of the Ramon Llull Year in London are organised by the Institut Ramon Llull with the Institute of Modern Languages Research School of Advanced Study, University of London Senate House; The Centre for Catalan Studies – QMUL and the Department of Iberian and Latin American Studies at QMUL with the support of the Government of Catalonia to the United Kingdom and Ireland and the Instituto Cervantes.
INSTITUT RAMON LLULL - The Institut Ramon Llull (IRL) is a public entity funded by the Catalan Government with the primary aim of promoting the Catalan Language and Culture internationally and is named after the visionary thinker Ramon Llull. The IRL’s programmes are coordinated by three departments: Performing and Visual Arts; Literature and the Humanities; and Language and Universities. In addition to its Barcelona headquarters, the IRL has four offices abroad in the cities of London, New York, Paris and Berlin. www.llull.cat
