Abstract

Book review, discusses the chronological structure of Annabel Rickett's posthumously published monograph on early modern English private chapels. Rickett's narrative is identified as tackling the academic fields of architectural history and ecclesiastical history, unifying them in a material history of religious practice. Rickett's interest in spatial relations is noted. Her exploration of themes such as the tension between status and spirituality, as expressed in interior schemes, span the chronological chapters. The additional value of the gazetter is to summarise the many examples within the text. Future work, for other researchers, could include a richer account of the Protestant relationship of art to religion, integrating architectural spaces with their artefacts.
