    Issue 18 – January 2024

    £6.47£8.47 Select options

    In this issue, we take you on a visit to one of the finest small churches in England – the delightful Norman gem at Kilpeck in Herefordshire where we explore the meaning behind its array of mid twelfth century sculpture.  Then moving forward in time, we explore instructions that King Edward IV gave for his tomb in St George’s chapel Windsor, which had they been carried out would have formed one of the most lavish funerary ensembles in western Europe.  We look at what remains of the king’s intentions, and what remains of the king himself!  The lastly, we look at a tradition that has long fallen out of use, the funerary hearse, we explore what a hearse is, what a hearse isn’t, and why this piece of funerary paraphenelia is named after a piece of farm equipment.

    Welcome to the October 2023 issue of The Antiquary. In this month’s issue we first take you on a journey to a remote and hidden chapel to see some stained glass commissioned by a member of Henry VIII’s household from  the royal glazier no less – it is a fine and rare work of art.  Then we explore with you one of the great lost structures of Tudor England, the great Palace of Whitehall, its history and its layout.  Lastly, in a continuation of last month’s article on funeral hatchments, we turn to the matter of funeral achievements and the practice of ‘heraldic’ funerals in medieval and early modern England.

    Issue 13 – August 2023

    £6.47£8.47 Select options

    Welcome to the August 2023 issue of The Antiquary.  In this issue, we have two articles that are about artistic idealism.  Firstly, we look at a couple of medieval monuments in Derbyshire created in the fifteenth century; they are among the finest examples of the sculptors’ craft and portray an idealised image of those commemorated and express an inflated view of their societal position.  In the religious climate of the late Middle Ages, people used their earthly resources to ensure that they were remembered once they had departed in the prayers of the living.  In the second article, we look briefly at the tradition of employing the poor at funerals to pray for the better off.  Lastly, we return to idealism and look at the story of a man who was among the wealthiest individuals of his age. He used his wealth to improve the lot of others and tame a wilderness, a landscape that, two hundred years after his death, still inspires people today.

    Welcome to the June 2023 issue of The Antiquary.   Summer is with us, and I am currently out and about doing what I enjoy the most, visiting sites across Britain with my camera – finding beautiful places and objects to share with all of you later in the year – I hope you have an equally enjoyable, restful and peaceful summer.   In this summer issue, I bring you three articles.  Firstly, I explore the extraordinary story of the development of the saintly cult of King Henry VI, whose graves, first at Chertsey and then at Windsor, became the focus of popular devotion.  Then I explore a peculiar character that was common in late medieval European art and folklore, the Wodewose (pronounced ‘wood-wus’) – the wild man, and why such a figure was so popular.  Lastly, I take you on a photographic tour of one of England’s most enchanting churches, Inglesham in Wiltshire, and explore why this beautiful building is so significant.   I hope you enjoy the issue.

    Issue 10 – May 2023

    £6.47£8.47 Select options

    Welcome to the May 2023 issue of The Antiquary.  With the coronation of King Charles III now fast approaching, it may well be all over by the time you get your copy of the magazine. We have decided to give you an issue with a royal flavour. There are two articles on the history of the coronation itself – the first looks at the extraordinary elements of Catholic ceremonial and regalia within the ceremony, which survive the English Reformation. The second looks at the most extravagant and absurd coronation – that of George IV (shown above receiving his regalia) in 1821. Sticking with the royal theme, the first article in the issue looks at the history of the display of royal arms in English churches, why they were displayed, and what the heraldry signifies. Lastly, for a bit of variety, on a recent visit to Norfolk, we came across the story of the bizarre burial of a Norfolk gentleman – we thought we would share that with you. As well as that article, the article on the royal arms has a Norfolk bias, illustrated solely with examples from the county – but that indicates what a rich source of treasures Norfolk is; we never tire of exploring its history and churches. We do hope you enjoy the issue.

    Issue 7 – February 2023

    £6.47£8.47 Select options

    The churches of Norfolk contain one of the most remarkable collections of late medieval art in Western Europe – they are a series of panel paintings incorporated into screen work, most notably rood, or as they are more appropriately called, chancel screens. Some of these paintings are of such fine quality that they are of international importance. If they were hung in an art gallery in a major city, they would be well known and acclaimed – but because they are to be found in isolated churches, they are not appreciated as much as they ought to be. In this issue of The Antiquary, we want to share examples of this great artistic legacy to give some sense of the significance, purpose, and motives behind their creation.  In many cases, these works of art, like our medieval churches in England in general, are now fragile and perilous. Unless they become better known, we risk losing an artistic treasure and essential source material for our medieval ancestors’ religious and social life.

    Issue 3 – October 2022

    £6.47£8.47 Select options

    Death in the Western world today is often sanitised and hidden from view. Medieval people had the same fears as we have about death but were perhaps more sanguine and more prepared to reflect on the brevity of life than we are now because death was less hidden. Mortality among the young was high; pestilence carried people off with great regularity – people often lived in close-knit communities and faced the reality of death daily. People usually died at home, and the sight of dead bodies tightly wrapped in figure-hugging shrouds, buried in shallow graves within the churchyard, or for the wealthier members of society below the floor of the parish church itself, was part of the typical medieval life experience. In this issue, we explore the subject of medieval death and the monuments that medieval people erected to their dead.
