Abstract

This session is the third of three linked workshops which will explore interdisciplinary approaches to medieval transition periods, and social responses to political, cultural, and religious upheaval. This session explores the ways in which buildings and their landscapes were affected by the transition from the late Middle Ages to the post-medieval period, and how various institutions adapted, or failed to adapt, to the rapidly changing religious and political climate. What do the surviving material culture and documentary records tell us about buildings in transition, and in turn what do the buildings themselves tell us about Reformation, Dissolution and survival?
