Rob Hand at Summer School 15th – 22nd August 2014

The Faculty’s much-loved patron Rob Hand is back at Summer School! After an absence of two years, during which Rob was completing the final stages of his PhD in medieval history at The Catholic University of America, we’re delighted that he will be teaching at this year’s Summer School in Oxford.

Rob is teaching on the Astrology in Action programme, this time offering his wisdom on the so-called ‘malefics’ – Mars and Saturn. Considering that his PhD thesis is in Rob Handmilitary astrology in late medieval Italy, not to mention that his level of scholarship and professional achievement is of the very highest standard, we think he might have one or two things of interest to say about Mars and Saturn!

Track 4 of the programme is dedicated to Rob’s latest thinking on astrology – a whole day in the company of a master astrologer who has spent a lifetime perfecting his art. A professional practitioner since 1972, Rob’s knowledge of astrology, history, philosophy, and just about everything else of relevance to our work, is practically unparalleled.

Rob will be in illustrious company, with fellow guest tutors:

Darby Costello
Bernard Eccles
John Frawley
Mike Harding
Clare Martin
Lindsay Radermacher
Melanie Reinhart
Angela Voss
With a host of Faculty tutors too, a choice of two weekend courses, and part-modules and modules from our regular courses, it’s an event not to be missed.
