Issue 13 – August 2023 (Digital)


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.
