Abstract

Hands-on investigation of the physical, sensory and emotional has been a key feature of the ‘Experience of Worship’ research project, with enactments of medieval liturgies as a central point (rather than a culmination) of the research process – offering a markedly different and innovative approach to practice-led research. This round-table offers the opportunity to see some of the recordings of recent enactments of the late medieval Mass, Office and a Procession at Salisbury Cathedral and the small parish church of St Teilo, Llandeilo Talybont, now situated in St Fagans National History Museum Wales, and to discuss issues both historical and methodological arising from the them.

Participants include Judith Aveling (Bangor University), Paul Barnwell (Kellogg College, University of Oxford), John Harper (Bangor University), Christopher Hodkinson (Emmanuel College, University of Cambridge), Sally Harper (Bangor University), and Magnus Williamson (Newcastle University).
