Symbolism and meaning in Medieval and Early Modern buildings: 1200-1450 AD
Concentrating on the polite architecture of English great churches and castles, and their heavy investment in carved and painted details, we closely examine meaning in this imagery and explore its historical context to build up narratives of politics, belief and custom that can transform our understanding of what great buildings represented to their contemporary audience. Some examples use archaeology and inventories to reconstruct lost spaces, and there are many fresh observations. Encouraging drawing throughout the course, the result will be a new ability to read imagery in great buildings, parish churches and Museum collections.
