🎧 Going to Church in Medieval England
Latest Podcast Episodes 🎧 • 42m
Parish churches were at the heart of English social life in the Middle Ages. But how did they come into existence? Who staffed them? And how were the buildings used?
In this episode of Gone Medieval, Matt Lewis talks to Professor Nicholas Orme, whose new book Going to Church in Medieval England was shortlisted for the 2022 Wolfson History Prize, the UK’s most prestigious history writing award. Together, they explore how worship touched everyone’s lives, what happened in the daily and weekly services, and how churches marked festivals and the great events of life.
The Senior Producer on this episode was Elena Guthrie. It was edited and produced by Rob Weinberg.
