Virtual St Stephen's: The Medieval Model and the Art Historian

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The recent research project on St Stephen’s Chapel (2013–2017) included the creation of virtual models of the building at two stages in its history: as a palace chapel in 1360 and as the House of Commons in 1707. The present article considers the modelling of the medieval chapel from the perspective of the art historian. It reflects upon the process methodologically, and presents some research questions about this great lost building and its that we have explored through modelling. It also documents, in an appendix, the sources for the model and decisions that were made about how to use them, including alternative possibilities and open questions.
