The Leaves of Southwell Project Presents: a talk by James Wright

How did stonemasons work with their patrons to create meaningful imagery upon buildings? Looking in detail at this relationship can give us a unique insight into the mediaeval mind. Using case studies at buildings such as Southwell Minster, Tattershall Castle and Norwich Cathedral we can begin to understand the fascinating, disturbing and sometimes comedic messages imparted to the viewer. Ideas connected to religious texts, morality, lordship, politics and personal identity are covered as we explore how one simple image may have many complex meanings…

Book your place on this insightful talk on the Southwell Minster website.
