The Norwich Historic Churches Trust’s Centre for Parish Church Studies (CPCS) has launched its programme of events for 2018.

Established to explore all aspects of parish churches, including historical, social, archaeological, architectural and liturgical, on both local and national levels, the CPCS offers a series of day and weekend schools, weekly courses, tours and practical sessions. These will typically take place in Norwich.

Many of these events will consider and examine the role of stained glass in medieval parish churches. On February 3rd, 2018, for example, John Vigar’s day school on Commemorating the Dead will include discussion of the commemorative function of stained glass, whilst later in the year Dr Allan Barton will explore The Visual Setting of Late Medieval Worship (14th April) and Medieval Stained Glass: Style, Design and Conservation (15th September).
