Day School: Medieval Churches Walk

Ref: C2223903

We shall visit three or four of the city's churches. At each there will be a short lecture to explain the main points of architecture and history. After this you will be free to examine the building on your own or in groups to discuss it and focus on aspects that interest you. The tutor will be on hand to answer questions and promote discussion.

Course aim

This walking tour will visit three or four of the city churches (depending on availability) to examine their architecture and history.

Who is the course for?

What topics will this course cover

Mediæval church architecture. Pre-and post-Reformation church history.

What will it be like?

WEA classes are friendly and supportive. You will be encouraged to work together with your fellow students and tutor. You will be asked to share your ideas and views in the class and work with the group to give and accept feedback in a supportive environment. The WEA tutor will use a range of different teaching and learning methods and encourage you to be actively involved in your learning. You may be asked to undertake work to support your course outside of your class.

By the end of the course I should be able to:

1. Describe aspects of the architecture of the churches 2. Demonstrate a greater understanding of the histories of individual churches 3. Assess how the churches relate to the cityscape of Norwich

How will I know I'm making progress?

By means of informal discussion during the day.

What else do I need to know, do or bring?

You may wish to bring notebooks, cameras, etc.

Reading and information sources

None as such, but the tutor's book 'The Medieval Churches of the City of Norwich' is a useful starting point.

What could the course lead to?

Further reading; visiting other churches; involvement in groups dealing with the topics covered.
