Event description

Description

For hundreds of years the right of sanctuary has existed in churches where fugitives from justice could spend a set period before facing the courts. However London possessed a number of permanent sanctuaries where things often turned out differently. Join Robert Stephenson to hear how the system functioned, was abused by fugitives and violated by the authorities.
