What was the impact on Hereford Cathedral of the Reformation years and what role did the bishops of Hereford play? What has survived here that bears witness to this? Why was the Valor Ecclesiasticus ‘the other Domesday?’

Kris Johnston’s talk encompasses the years from 1504 (when Bishop Mayhew was consecrated) to 1633 (when Bishop Francis Godwin died), the period of the reigns of Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary I, Elizabeth I and James I.

Following the talk is the opportunity to see some of the treasures from our historic collections in a special display in the reading room. Also coupled with it is a self-led treasure hunt with clues to discovering some of the objects within the cathedral itself, including some of the less obvious pre-Reformation survivors.
