Originally, parishioners supported their parish church and its clergy through a system of tithes paid in kind (such as crops, wool or milk) that comprised an agreed proportion of the yearly profits from farming. However, over the centuries due to changes in religion, politics and society this apparently simple agreement altered considerably.
Tithe provides historians with a wonderful opportunity to investigate the past, from farming practices to resistance and revolt. This conference brings together well-known historians and new researchers in an exploration of a fascinating topic.
Speakers include Professor Christopher Dyer and Dr John Bulaitis
