The English Parish
The parish is a universal unit of local organization whose records allow privileged insights into religious, economic and political life right across Europe.
This presentation focuses on a comparison of English ecclesiastical communities from medieval to modern times, and across regions, through glances at a Continental case study.
Well-documented in a range of sources, the parish emerges as a social hub at the intersection of the secular and sacred spheres, where priorities and changes were negotiated between laity, clergy and, increasingly from around 1500, state authorities.
