Annual Conference: Chancel screens since the Reformation

When: 28/09/2019
Location: St Albans Centre
Baldwins Gardens,
London,
EC1N 7AB

The Society’s 2019 Annual Conference will address the fascinating topic of chancel screens after the Reformation. Details of the programme, speakers and how to book a place at the conference will be announced in due course.

The conference will aim to develop an understanding of:

  • how and why attitudes towards chancel screens changed across this long period;
  • the erection of new screens since the Reformation;
  • the ways in which both pre and post-Reformation screens have been adapted, relocated and re-used at various times in response to liturgical and ecclesial change; and
  • in all of the above, consideration of matters of style and artistry, alongside matters of purpose and belief.
