Dr Ellie Pridgeon FSA promoting the study of medieval wall paintings

Inglesham Church – Saturday 20th October 2012

on September 12, 2012

Dr Miriam Gill (University of Leicester) will be speaking onsite about the renowned wall paintings at Inglesham (Wiltshire).  These  include 13th century decorative painting in the chancel, early 14th century figurative painting (St Catherine and the possible remains of a Judgement), and the mid-14th century painted stone altarpiece (and possibly a Seven Deadly Sins Tree).  The St Christopher dates from the end of the medieval period, and there is also evidence of 16th, 17th and 18th century post-Reformation black letter text.

The event is currently being organised by the Highworth Historical Society, and more information can be found at:
