Chelsea Brown works to unearth and emancipate feminine power from religious and historical narratives. Her most recent work investigates the real women responsible for much of Oxford’s history and mythology, including Saint Frideswide, the patron saint of Oxford.
From founding the site of Christ Church Cathedral where her bones rest to this day, to blinding kings and replenishing their sight with healing springs, her story is one where reality and myth blend to form the true history of Oxford.
