Norfolk Rood Screens - 05 to 30 January 2013

This is the second visit by Paul Hurst to exhibit at the Cathedral's Hostry. In 2011 he displayed images of Norwich Cathedral's nave roof bosses.

Ludham Screen (C) Paul Hurst

Following on from the subject of church/cathedral medieval art, this exhibition celebrates the Rood Screen in Norfolk and is timed to coincide with the launch of a book on this subject.  Paul has visited 24 churches in the Diocese and captured detailed images of these fascinating medieval works of art, accompanying the panels with informed text by Jeremy Haselock, FSA, Vice Dean of the Cathedral.

The exhibition will feature a full-size set of panel images from the rood screen at St Michael and all Angels, Barton Turf, which is considered to be one of the finest in the country.  Several entries from the book will also be displayed.

As well as the Rood Screen display, there will be a smaller section in the exhibition showing architectural images from one of Paul's recent visits to Rome.

Copies of the book that accompanies this exhibition will be available from the Cathedral Shop, priced £25.
