Event description

Description

Speaker: Professor Roberta Gilchrist (University of Reading

Monasteries were active in creating ritual landscapes as imagined spaces, interweaving myth and hagiography with material practices to embody memory and the medieval sense of place. These meanings, in turn, were reworked as post-Reformation narratives which operated at local and national scales. This lecture introduces the theme of memory in the monastic landscape, before considering a case study of Glastonbury Abbey in detail.
