The Cult of Saints and their Relics at Whitby Abbey: Scholarship and Interpretative Challenges

Dr Michael Carter received his PhD from The Courtauld Institute of Art in 2013. His thesis provided a reinterpretation of the art and architecture of the Cistercians in northern England in the late Middle Ages. He was subsequently appointed as the Andrew W Mellon Postdoctoral Research Fellow there. Michael has lectured at the University of York and the University of Kent and in 2014 he was appointed as a Senior Properties Historian at English Heritage. His first research monograph was published in 2019, entitled The Art and Architecture of the Cistercians in Northern England, c.1300-1540.

We are very fortunate to have Michael coming to speak to us for our first Art History Research Seminar and we welcome as many of you to come along as can make it!
