From Purgatory to Feminine Heaven, The Commemoration of Women in Norfolk Church Monuments.

Speaker: Richard Cocke

A wide range of examples drawn from Norfolk’s outstanding church monuments illustrate the profound effect of the reformation on commemoration. While women were often simply added besides their husbands, later many were commemorated in their own right. Richard will provide an illustrated talk that will delve into the history of the commemoration of woman over time.
