An Historical Association Talk with Professor Alexandra Walsham, Emmanuel College, Cambridge; President of the Historical Association
This richly illustrated lecture has a double objective: it explores how the Reformation transformed medieval memorial culture and perceptions of the Christian past, alongside the manner in which the Reformation itself was remembered, forgotten, contested and reinvented by later generations and in subsequent centuries. Drawing on extensive research in many libraries, archives and museums, it offers new insight into the enduring impact that the profound rupture wrought by this religious revolution had upon English society and into the manner in which its memory shifted over time. 
The Reformation transformed medieval culture; the Reformation was looked back upon in various ways by later generations, and became reinvented.
