Norwich and the Medieval Parish Church Conference

17 & 18 June, 10.00 - 16.30
Weston Room
medieval churches conference
This conference focuses on the Medieval Parish Churches of Norwich: city, community and architecture research project.

All 58 churches, whether existing, ruined or lost, are included in the scope of the project, which seeks insight into how the medieval city developed topographically, architecturally and socially. The Project is intended to reveal the interdependent relationship between city, community and architecture showing how people and places shaped each other during the middle ages. The conference (supported by the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art and Purcell) will present the medieval parish churches of Norwich in their immediate local context and in the broader framework of urban churches in Britain and northern Europe. The subject range will include documentary history, the architectural fabric of the buildings themselves and their place in the topography of Norwich, the development of the churches’ architecture and furnishings, the representation of the churches and their post-Reformation history.

Cost: £50 per delegate / £40 per student delegate (limited number of places available). The conference fee includes refreshments and sandwich lunch on both days, and a drinks reception in Norwich Cathedral cloister on Saturday evening.
