Looking Back, Going Forward:
20th Century Attitudes towards Religious Buildings
An English Heritage Conference
26th-27th June, 2003
This conference seeks to locate the social and historic context of 20th-century attitudes towards religious buildings of different dates and denominations. In particular, it will look at the ways in which the approaches and interests of academics, including both historians and architectural historians, have shaped how we view these buildings.
Rather than looking at religious buildings in chronological terms, which can divide single period specialists without revealing their common interests, the conference will explore more thematic issues such as the social context behind changing stylistic preferences, conservation and politics, religion and nationality, the changing use of religious buildings, and the place of worship in society.
