The Society for Church Archaeology is delighted to welcome Dr Kate Giles, who will deliver an online lecture ‘The medieval wall paintings of Pickering church (North Yorkshire): discovery, restoration and meaning’.
In this free online lecture, Dr Kate Giles (Centre for the Study of Christianity & Culture and the Department of Archaeology, University of York) will share her research on the remarkable series of wall paintings in Pickering church, N. Yorks. Long thought to be an example of Victorian over-restoration, Kate will make the case for a reappraisal of these paintings as a means not just of telling the story of hundreds, if not thousands of England’s medieval churches, but also as a potentially unique survival of a hidden scheme of meanings, which form the subject of her forthcoming monograph, to be published by Shaun Tyas in 2022.
The lecture will be hosted through Zoom and will take place on Thursday 6th January 2021 from 19:00 to 20:00 GMT.
