Description

Museum of Freemasonry’s new exhibition Generous Dentist focuses on the life and times of Bartholomew Ruspini, freemason, philanthropist and dentist to 18th-century society.

Join Susan Snell, Archivist and Records Manager to find out more about this charismatic and sociable Italian. Ruspini revolutionised English dental care and set up a new charity to help children of freemasons with health or financial problems. His legacies include setting up the present-day Royal Masonic School for Girls and freemasonry’s annual fundraising festival scheme.

Listen as Susan sweeps you back to 18th-century London: trendy turtle dinners, a lottery for a Michelangelo cabinet, managing royal patrons and an opera singer in prison all appear in this entertaining talk.
