    The parish, the lowest level of hierarchy in the medieval church, was the shared responsibility of the laity and the clergy. Most Christians were baptized, went to confession, were married, and were buried in the parish church or churchyard; in addition, business, legal settlements, sociability, and entertainment brought people to the church, uniting secular and sacred concerns.

    >This study explores the work of Britain's foremost national landscape painter John Constable (1776-1837). Based on her view of the Constable exhibition at Tate Britain 2006, author Janet Barber considers the development of the artist, placing his works in context of the cultural conditions of his time, and noting contemporary reactions to his public exhibitions at the Royal Academy; efforts which often met with a profound distaste for their powerfully expressive naturalism.
