    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 12 – July 2023

    £6.47£8.47 Select options

    Welcome to the July 2023 issue of The Antiquary, and in this issue, we celebrate a full year of the magazine. I thank all of you subscribers and supporters who have made this possible. This issue is one of our periodic albums focusing on a particular theme in the History of Art. It looks closely at the portrayal of angels, with images from both an English and Welsh context, primarily from the Middle Ages. The essay running through the issue focuses on the textual sources for the iconography of angels, both the biblical and broader tradition of the Church, and the influence of Pseudo-Dionysius on the understanding of angelology. I do hope you enjoy this issue.

    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.

    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.

    In this issue, we return to our usual miscellany format with articles on various subjects.  Firstly, early printing and the ground-breaking work of William Caxton and Wynkyn de Worde.  There are articles on panel paintings – one a Doom painting portraying the Last Judgement, the second a piece of English state iconography, a painting of the Spanish Armada. Lastly, a longer article looks at the extraordinary survival of a Saxon chapel, long encased in a farmhouse and rediscovered in the nineteenth century—plenty for you to enjoy and whet your historical appetite.
