Abstract

Medieval Norwich had more parishes than any English city outside London. Their churches ranged in size and complexity depending on the number and wealth of the parishioners, but also on the amount of building space available in the churchyard. As the number of parishes contracted from the 13th century to the Reformation, the smaller churches were demolished or demoted to chapels of ease. However, all the greater churches survive to the present day and represent the taste and ambition of the citizens.
