    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.

    Issue 9 – April 2023

    £6.47£8.47 Select options

    Welcome to the April 2023 issue of The Antiquary.  This month, we give you a mix of articles and features on both saints and sinners.  We introduce you to a delightful church in the countryside near Berkshire in southeast England, with glorious medieval wall paintings and the tomb of a man and his wife, who may have had blue blood.  Then an article on a fascinating cave complex in the wilds of Derbyshire that also has strong royal connections and may have been the hermitage of a deposed Anglo-Saxon king over a thousand years ago.  Dick Turpin, the highwayman, was no king but a scoundrel, and in the following article, we look at his life and wicked exploits. We explore how his reputation was altered and somewhat improved by the novelist’s pen.  Lastly, an article about Christian iconography looks at the mysterious legend of the girdle of the Blessed Virgin Mary, how it originated and the surviving relics of Mary’s belt.   We do hope you enjoy the issue.
