The Reformation brought dramatic changes to religious life in England, transforming the doctrine, structure and even the appearance of the Church. This website has been created to give a sense of what those changes might have meant to English people, by showing how Sunday worship was affected. It shows the central moments from a Mass or eucharist (communion service) in three periods: late medieval, Elizabethan and Laudian. The same church has been used, the University Church of St Mary the Virgin in Oxford, for most of the pictures. This church has a large nave separated from the chancel by a screen, and despite the modern additions and alterations it is still possible to see how differently the space was used in these periods.
