Event Details

Evening lecture by Dr Lizzie Swarbrick, Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in the School of Art History at University of Edinburgh. In this lecture we will delve into the extraordinary richness of Rosslyn Chapel. By examining its art, architecture, and place in the landscape we will consider why it was built, and who might have been responsible for such a flashy and unusual church. Then we will imaginatively re-furnish the church with other Scottish late medieval and pre-Reformation artworks. Finally, we will explore a broader question of how we 'read' art and architecture and the roles movement and the act of looking have in getting pre-Reformation people closer to Heaven.
