England’s Magna Carta, written in 1215, is often cited as the cornerstone of liberty in the Anglo-American legal tradition. On loan from Lincoln Cathedral, one of only four surviving copies of the original Magna Carta is on view at the MFA in July and August with other documents and symbols of liberty. Join expert Gerald Ward to cover almost 800 years of art and related texts that refer to this celebrated document and underscore its ongoing importance.
