Clare Haynes 

Dr Clare Haynes is an art historian, whose main interest lies in the uses to which art has been put in the service of religious belief and its antagonisms. She is currently working on a handbook of the Anglican parish church interior, part of a larger project investigating the use of art in the Church of England 1660-1840. Her publications include the book Pictures and Popery  (Aldershot, 2006) and articles dealing with religious ideas in British art theory. She has taught at UEA, Edinburgh and in 2013 &15 she was the Bell Visiting Professor of Anglican and Episcopal Studies at the University of Tulsa, OK, USA.
