Recreating the experience of medieval worship

A research project which investigates the medieval experience of worship is featured on the Arts & Humanities Research Council website. The “Experience of worship in late medieval cathedral and parish church” project is led by Prof John Harper and Dr Sally Harper at the University’s School of Music.

The project seeks to reveal not only how worship was conducted and experienced in the Middle Ages, but also how this might lead to new insights about worship in medieval buildings today. The project’s partner organizations are St Fagans and Salisbury Cathedral, and a team of associated clergy is led by Canon Jeremy Davies, precentor of Salisbury Cathedral.The project is funded by both the Arts & Humanities Research Council and the Economic & Social Research Council as part of the ‘Religion and Society’ programme.
