Abstract :
This paper attempts to give an overview of the impact of iconoclasm as it affected both worshippers and church buildings. The former involves considering the various aspects of change which could be regarded as losses of the sensory in liturgy and worship, and contemporary recognition of resulting discontents. The latter includes both positive and negative developments. Churches altered with the aim of purifying worship became lighter buildings, assisting the use of books and the learning of texts, while belief in the idolatry of the Mass led to the restructuring of chancels and east ends. Images were banished, but broken images could ultimately be seen as admonitory, as could displacing the rood by the secular emblem of the church's Supreme Head. For their part, reluctant worshippers, hoping for a reversal, sometimes surreptitiously buried proscribed images inside places of worship, as well as elsewhere. Concludes with some reflections on the concept of holiness. ;
