Dr Ellie Pridgeon FSA promoting the study of medieval wall paintings

Monumental Brasses and Medieval Wall Painting – Cirencester 2014

Saturday September 27th 2014


The annual Monumental Brass Society Study Day will take place at Cirencester this year.   It will focus on the 16 pre-Reformation brasses in the church of St John the Baptist, the finest collection to be found in the Cotswolds.   These form an impressive series commemorating clergy and parishioners alike.

The Study Day will focus on these memorials together with the influence of Bishop Chedworth who was buried in Lincoln Cathedral, but commemorated at Cirencester.  Dr Miriam Gill (University of Leicester) will be talking about Chedworth’s chapel, and will discuss the medieval wall painting still extant today.
