SEMINAR: Remembering the Reformation in Early Modern England
| Remembering the Reformation in Early Modern England : A CHE Seminar with Peter Sherlock
The idea of the Reformation as an event had emerged in historical scholarship by the end of the seventeenth century. New research led by Alexandra Walsham and Brian Cummings is revealing how the reformers were commemorated in a range of ritual and material forms. Although monuments were themselves transformed by reformed doctrine and ritual, this paper seeks to answer the question, did they represent the Reformation itself?
Professor Peter Sherlock is the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Divinity in Melbourne, Australia and author of Monuments and Memory in Early Modern England (Ashgate, 2008) and several book chapters and journal articles on memory and commemoration in early modern Europe.
This seminar is hosted by the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions (Europe, 1100-1800).
