Although slightly off the neo-gothic point, I am posting this link to St. Jamess in Antwerp which has a magnificent rood-screen, stll intact, closing off the chancel from the nave. Clealy, it was not a liturgical “requirement” to demolish it.
It is interesting to note the Roman influences on this 17th century interior: the columns of the High Altar derive from Bernini’s baldachino in St. Peter’s; the organ gallery/porch from Bramante’s Tempietto and the facade of Santa Maria della Vittoria.
