Annual Conference: Chancel screens since the Reformation

When: 28/09/2019
Location: St Albans Centre
Baldwins Gardens,

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.
