The lecture will be on the architectural patronage of John Medley, Bishop of Fredericton NB, 1845-92. Attention is paid to his passion for the close study of English medieval churches and the use of these sources in the design of the churches in his diocese.
He has a PhD in the History of Art from the University of East Anglia (1976).
Thurlby specializes in Medieval Art and Architecture. He taught at Queen’s University, Concordia University and the University of Winnipeg before coming to York in 1984. He is the author of four books and over 150 articles on Medieval Art and Architecture throughout Europe, and on Canadian architecture. On the latter, 16 articles are on churches in Hamilton, Ontario, and vicinity for the website Raise the Hammer; they aim at raising awareness of heritage buildings in a much wider forum than in academic journals.
