Death, Sin and Purgatory in Late-Medieval England

Tuesday 21 February
Taylor Selwyn Room, the Learning Centre, Inner Close, Winchester Cathedral, Winchester, Hampshire SO23 9LS

Dr Christina Welch explores the concept of purgatory and what that meant for late-medieval people, examines the concept of indulgences and how these related to purgatory, and raises the contentious issue of the supposed experience of those in purgatory. She will relate these issues to the carved cadaver memorials of Bishops Fox and Gardener.

Dr Christina Welch is a Senior Fellow at the University of Winchester where she lectures in religious Studies and leads the Master’s programme in Death, Religion and Culture. Dr Welch has research interests in religion and visual culture.
