In the year that we are raising money to preserve our monastic buildings, we are pleased to announce that Professor Julian Luxford is giving our March online lecture, when he will be sharing his research and records of the original London Charterhouse – before it was repurposed as a Tudor mansion, and then a school and almshouse.

He will be focusing on the main buildings of the Charterhouse as they existed in the years around 1500 and particularly highlighting some of their lesser-known aspects. As the buildings have mostly been destroyed, or else greatly altered, there will be frequent reference to contemporary documentation. The idea is to evoke historically defining aspects of a site which, in spite of the worst efforts of Henry VIII (and the Second World War), has never stopped echoing its monasticism.

Julian Luxford is Professor of Art History at the University of St Andrews, where he has worked since 2004. One of his main scholarly interests is the medieval art and architecture of the Carthusian order, and he has published essays on some of the sculptural fragments in the Charterhouse’s museum and contributed to Revealing the Charterhouse, published in 2016.
