The Experience of Worship in Late Medieval Cathedral and Parish Church


Abstract:
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?
