IMSSS Symposium at Downside 2018

Over 70 delegates from the IMSSS visited Downside Abbey to have a day conference in the abbey church. The Heritage team joined Dom James in exhibiting a collection of relics, manuscripts and vestments in the sacristy for the delegates.

A lecture series and workshop took place in the abbey church exploring some of Downside’s rarest manuscripts and relics. The day conference took place as part of the abbey’s Centre for Monastic Heritage as part of its continued partnership with the University of Bristol.
