    Issue 21 – April 2024

    £6.47£8.47 Select options

    We begin the magazine this month by looking at an aspect of the medieval ceremonial of English medieval Holy Week.  Focusing on the ritual of the sepulchre and the vigil, we look at the material evidence for the sepulchre and whether the objects that are generally known as Easter Sepulchres are any such a thing at all.  Then we head to south Lincolnshire where we introduce to a curious medieval bridge at Crowland, which has an interesting history and no practical purpose. Lastly, we look at the hagiography of St Guthlac, the founder of Crowland, an ascetic known as the English St Anthony, and who lived the final years of his life in a converted long barrow!

    Issue 20 – March 2024

    £6.47£8.47 Select options

    Welcome to the February 2024 issue of the Antiquary.  This month we begin by exploring something of the stark reality of life in Georgian Britain, looking at the gin craze of the middle of the eighteenth century, that brought great hardship to the already struggling working poor of England’s cities.  Then we move on from the plight of the poor to the fancies of the super-rich, and we take you on a visit to St Lawrence’s, West Wycombe, in Buckinghamshire, a building that is half folly, half church – built by a grand tourist in the 1760s to express his love of the classical world.  Lastly, we move further back in time to the fifteenth century as we look at the creation of the Nuremburg Chronicle, one of the earliest illustrated books printed.  There is lots for you to enjoy.

    Welcome to the November 2023 issue of The Antiquary. In this issue I take you to Northamptonshire in the English Midlands, to the village of Fotheringhay.  This is a small place that has seen momentous events, it has witnessed the birth of a king, the death of a Queen and the burial of a man who nearly claimed the throne of England. I tell the story of this remarkable place through the buildings that bear witness to that past history, its spectacular medieval church and the ruins of its mighty castle.  Keeping to the theme of death and endings the final article this month looks at a popular piece of iconography, the Three Living and the Three Dead, and its emergence in the plague-riven world of fourteenth century Europe.

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.

    Welcome to the September 2023 issue of The Antiquary. This month, there are two related articles on the British coronation regalia; the first tells the fascinating story of Colonel Blood, who audaciously tried to steal the regalia from the Tower of London in 1671. The second article on the theme focuses on the crown that Blood stole, the now-lost state crown of Charles II made in 1661 and broken up in 1714. Then, on a completely unrelated note, we look at the tradition of heraldic funeral hatchments, the first of a two-part series on heraldic funerals and funeral achievements.

    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 8 – March 2023

    £6.47£8.47 Select options

    This issue begins with an exploration of a bit of a mystery – a rare thing in England – the shrine of a medieval saint with the relics still within it, it is a mystery how it survived, but it is even more of a puzzle trying to work out who the saint within was.  The second article is about an unusual office associated with the English coronation, that of the King’s Champion; we look at the role and how it originated, and again there is an air of mystery about how it came into being.  Then we look at an aspect of medieval iconography in an article examining the eastern origin of two of the most popular images in late medieval Western art – the Mass of St Gregory and the Man of Sorrows.  There’s little mystery here about how they came to be: they came into the Western artistic lexicon through tall stories told to pilgrims!  Then lastly, a fourth article is about a church building in a remote part of the Black Mountains in Wales, a building full of medieval treasures. There are two mysteries here: the first is the identity and story of the early medieval saint that the church is dedicated to; the second is how on earth this building has retained some of the unique medieval fixtures and fittings within it.   I hope you enjoy reading it.

    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.
