The Experience of Worship in Late Medieval Cathedral and Parish Church

The Experience of Worship in late medieval Cathedral and Parish Church is an ongoing research project initiated at Bangor University (2009 to 2013), as part of the UK-wide research programme exploring Religion & Society. This website enables you to explore questions about late medieval religious buildings and the rituals and worship that took place in them.
  • What was it like to worship in a late medieval cathedral and parish church?
  • If we enact medieval worship now, what can we find out about the total experience of those taking part – as ministers, as singers, as congregation – and about the buildings, artefacts, texts, and rituals that are used?
  • And how does this kind of investigation help us better to understand the people and religious culture of the late Middle Ages?
