Course Description

Parish churches were central to people’s lives in England during the Middle Ages, being built, extended and rebuilt throughout the period. Was the development of parish church buildings due to the desire to keep up with the latest architectural fashions or simply to accommodate more parishioners? Or was it to meet the demands of an increasingly more elaborate liturgy? More importantly, who was paying for it all? We will be looking at churches from both historical and archaeological perspectives. Standing buildings will provide our core material but we will also be looking at other sources including historical documents. The course will include a walking tour of York parish churches.
