The British Records Association is delighted to support The National Archives (UK) in developing a research network to support the work of postgraduate students, early career researchers and scholars who use the Reformation-related collections of The National Archives as part of their research. The inaugural meeting of this research network will take place at a forthcoming conference which will raise awareness of current research into the Reformation using the records of The National Archives.


On 3 and 4 November 2017, The National Archives is running ‘Reformation on the Record’ – a two-day conference which will bring together research, using original records of Church and State from The National Archives’ collections, to explore this period of religious, social and economic turmoil.


This conference is the highlight of The National Archives’ Reformation programme in 2017. It features more than 30 speakers from academic institutions across the UK, the opportunity to participate in workshops involving original records, and a keynote lecture on the topic of ‘The Reformation as Disruption’ to be delivered by Professor Richard Rex (University of Cambridge).
