Seen to be Remembered: Representation and Recollection in Contemporary British Evangelicalism

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Protestantism also has a varied and complex visual expression, one which extends well beyond the European High Art tradition of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries (with which the movement is commonly associated). This expression includes a visual culture of popular piety, the study of which (while still in its infancy) has shown that Protestants, in spite of their iconoclastic and iconophobic tendencies, have employed types of visual artefacts and customs of visualization as varied as their constituency is diverse. The essay contributes to this developing specificity and catholicity of approach, and involves a preliminary examination of the visual culture of the largest contemporary Protestant movement – Evangelicalism.
