Monuments of the Wars of the Roses: A one day colloquium

21st Oct, 2023
Leicester Guildhall, Leicester

A one-day colloquium will take place at the Guildhall, in honour of Mark Downing who steps down as President of the Church Monuments Society in the summer of 2023. This special event is being held to thank Mark for his tireless work on behalf of the CMS with a series of lectures devoted to ‘Monuments of the Wars of the Roses’. Speakers will consider different types of church monuments, both extant and lost, and focus on particular case studies in the late fifteenth century. The lectures will focus on how tomb patrons chose to be commemorated (and where), stylistic changes to emerge and change during the period and to reflect on what was so special about in tomb production during one of the most turbulent periods in late medieval history.
