Professor Clive Burgess, 1952-2023


We were all shocked to learn of the sudden death of Clive Burgess in August last year. Clive was a member of the Harlaxton Medieval Symposium steering committee and an expert in the history of late medieval religion. He was the honorand of the 2017 Harlaxton Medieval Symposium, the proceedings of which were published in his honour as The Urban Church in Late Medieval England. He also co-convened both the 2002 and the 2008 symposia, which were respectively published as The Parish in Late Medieval England and Memory and Commemoration in Late Medieval England.

A memorial service in Clive’s honour will be held on Saturday 22nd June 2024 in the chapel at Royal Holloway, University of London, where Clive worked and taught for many years. As numbers are limited, those wishing to attend should register on Eventbrite.
