Nineteenth and Twentieth-Century Convents and Monasteries

English Heritage has just published its new ‘Introduction to Heritage Assets’ on Nineteenth and Twentieth-Century Convents, written by KSA’s Gothic Revival specialist Dr Timothy Brittain-Catlin.

These Introductions are written by experts and peer-reviewed before publication. They provide architectural enthusiasts and the general reader as well as conservation officers and other professionals with an outline of the history of important building types and an insight into priorities in conservation policy.

The Introduction can be freely downloaded from English Heritage’s website:

Dr Brittain-Catlin is currently working on other Gothic Revival projects, including a book based on KSA’s highly successful 2012 international conference ‘New Directions in Gothic Revival Studies Worldwide’, and contributions to the forthcoming volume on Material Reform in the University of Leuven Press’ series The Dynamics of Religious Reform in Northern Europe, 1780-1920, both of which will be published in 2016.
