The rood screen was the visual focus of the medieval parish church, dividing the nave from the chancel. It was used to divide the nave and chancel the secular and the sacred in parish churches in the Middle Ages.Most were built of wood and were adorned with intricate carved decoration and bright painted colours, often with images of saints. Defaced and often dismantled during the Reformation in the mid-sixteenth century, surviving screens have been restored to their former glory since the nineteenth century and are now among the most prized treasures of our parish churches. This fully illustrated guide explains the symbolic and practical significance of rood screens and describes the ways in which they were decorated. There is also a list of churches in England and Wales where screens can be found.
