Medieval Images

A new course for autumn 2019 is proposed on the topic of Medieval Images. It will explore medieval art, particularly wall paintings, from the point of view of a medieval monk, examples of which can be found in local churches and Sherborne Abbey.
Much of this imagery is non-biblical and therefore poses questions on its identification, religious meaning and the stories and legends it represents. The painting techniques and pigments used to create them will be demonstrated.
The course will be led by Clive, not a historian but 10 years a guide at St Albans Abbey where he became fascinated with the group of wall paintings which are of international significance. His researches involved contacts with conservators, academic experts and comparisons with examples of paintings throughout Europe.

There will be six sessions held on the morning of the second Monday commencing in November.
