Centre for Parish Church Studies Day School

Storied windows, richly dight?: the care, creation and continuity of stained glass after the Reformation” – Dr Louise Hampson (University of York)

Saturday 28 May 2022 │ 10:00-16:00 │ in person event

St Martin at Palace Church, 15 St Martin at Palace Plain, Norwich, NR3 1RW


The extensive trade in stained and painted glass sustained by the late medieval church and exemplified by the Norwich schools certainly suffered a reversal with the religious changes of the sixteenth century, but how accurate is the common perception that ‘the Reformation’ brought the craft in England to an end until the ‘rediscoveries’ of the nineteenth century? This day school explores the world of stained glass in England between 1500 and 1800.

The day will probably include site visits on foot to see some glass in Norwich churches during the afternoon.
