Society for Church Archaeology | Visualizing Purgatory in the Medieval English Church

June 7 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Society for Church Archaeology is delighted to welcome Dr Meg Bernstein for ‘Visualizing Purgatory in the Medieval English Parish Church’. Meg Bernstein is a Fulbright US Scholar in History of Art at the University of York in 2021-2, and holds a postdoctoral fellowship from the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art. She graduated from UCLA in 2019 with a PhD in Art History, focusing on medieval art and architecture. Meg’s current book project, tentatively titled A Living Church: Building the English Parish, 1150-1300, examines the social and spatial developments in parish churches in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, demonstrating that these buildings were a vehicle for the expression of new religious and social identities.

The lecture will be hosted through Zoom and will take place on Tuesday 7th June 2022 from 19:00 to 20:00.
