Rosaries on Brasses - and elsewhere

Nicholas Rogers will speak at this virtual meeting via Zoom, which is free to attend an open to all. 

Rosaries are often depicted on late medieval English brasses. This talk will trace the origins and development of this devotional aid, look at the materials of which the beads were made, and examine the various ways rosaries are depicted as a dress accessory and in use on monuments and in other works of art. The impact of the Reformation and the survival of the rosary as a significant element in recusant religious life will also be considered.

Saturday, 25 November, 5 p.m. GMT
