Michael Carter recently completed his PhD at the Courtauld. The subject of his thesis was the art and architecture of the Cistercians in northern England in the late Middle Ages. His research challenges many assumptions about the perceived decline of the Cistercians in the late medieval period, showing the enduring vitality of the Order’s visual and material cultures. During his fellowship year, Michael will be editing his thesis for publication as a monograph, while also organising a public research programme focused on religious art and conflict. Michael has presented invited lectures to the British Archaeological Association and the Society of Antiquaries, and has also published articles in several peer-reviewed journals, including Church Monuments, The Antiquaries Journal and The Journal of Medieval Monastic Studies.
