Historian Phillip Lindley introduces a selection of surprising and startlingly beautiful artworks from churches and cathedrals in England and Wales. Many of the works featured in the film suffered dreadfully in the iconoclasm of, first, the sixteenth-century Reformation and, later, the fundamentalism of the English Civil War. The film was made alongside Tate Britain's groundbreaking exhibition of medieval sculpture, which was selected by Lindley with the distinguished sculptor Richard Deacon. As he discusses, Richard Deacon designed the controversial installation of the works highlighting their striking and memorable qualities. Presenters, Phillip Lindley, Richard Deacon. Phillip Lindley is Excellence 100 Professor of Art History and came to Loughborough in February 2018. He read Art History at Downing College, Cambridge, where he was awarded a scholarship and went on to read his PhD, supervised by Professor Jean Michel Massing. He was awarded a Bye Fellowship at Downing for outsTanding doctoral research and a Research Fellowship at St Catharine\u2019s College. In 1987, he won the Reginald Taylor Prize of the British Archaeological Association. In 1988-91 he was awarded a British Academy Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the University of York and was then appointed to the University of Leicester where he was Head of Department in 1998-2003 and Founding Director of the Centre for the Study of the Country House in 2004. He was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1992 and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 2002. He was a visiting scholar at St. Catharine's College, Cambridge, in 2003 and at the YCBA, Yale University, in 2009. In 2007 he was awarded a LeverHulme Trust Fellowship and in March 2010 secured a £497,907 major grant, with three PhD studentships, from the AHRC/EPSRC funded Science & Heritage Programme. He headed a collaborative multi-discipLinary team including historians at Oxford and Yale universities and space scientists, computer scientists, museologists and archaeologists from Leicester, as well as staff from English Heritage and the Norfolk Museums and Archaeology Service. The Representing Re-Formation project employed 3D scanning, CAD and 3D printing and multi-discipLinary Arts research to analyse the Tudor monuments of the Dukes of Norfolk at Thetford and FramLingham. The project resulted in a number of publications, an exhibition, two Cambridge conferences and outreach events at Thetford and FramLingham, and led to the long-term loan by the British Museum of two panels originally planned for the monuments, to the Ancient House Museum, Thetford. Professor Lindley was subsequently invited to investigate the monuments of the dukes and duchesses of Montagu: his research supported a successful Lottery Funding bid for their conservation and led to a day symposium and several other publications. He has curated a number of exhibitions, most notably Image and Idol at Tate Britain, co-curated with the sculptor Richard Deacon in 2001-2 and Richard Deacon: This is where ideas come from at Wolfson College, Cambridge 2015. He was on organising committees for The Age of Chivalry at the Royal Academy in 1987 and Gothic: Art for England 1400-1547 at the V&A in 2003.
