A conference hosted by The Medieval Parish Churches of Norwich Research Project (undertaken at the University of East Anglia and funded by The Leverhulme Trust). 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 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.

Date: Papers on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 June 2017, site visits on Monday 19 June 2017 Location: The Weston Room, Norwich Cathedral Hostry
Speakers will include local and international scholars, as well as the UEA research team, Brian Ayers, Clare Haynes, T. A. Heslop, and Helen Lunnon

Programme: Full details, including timings and costings, to be announced. Bookings will be taken from early March 2017. Provisional reservations can be made by email to:
