Our medieval stained glass is one of the most evocative art forms to survive from the Middle Ages.
Thursday 28th June An evening lecture with Avis Lloyd Our medieval stained glass is one of the most evocative art forms to survive from the Middle Ages. It is intrinsically beautiful in its own right and the iconography it contains offers a window into the beliefs of medieval men and women. With examples from the 12th century to the end of the medieval period, this lecture explores some of the most interesting examples of stained glass in England. Avis Lloyd is a freelance lecturer in 'Medieval Art and Architecture' and has lectured regularly at the Corinium Museum for the past four years. She runs a range of courses for adults in both subjects, ranging from the early medieval period to the 16th century. Tonight's lecture is part of her 'Art and Design in the Late Medieval Church' series and is a popular and fascinating subject. Tickets cost £5.65 or £5.00 to annual season ticket holders. All lectures are from 7 - 8.30pm (this includes time for questions). Finish times may vary. 01285 655611
