Issue 17 – December 2023


The December 2023 issue has a suitably seasonal theme.  We begin by exploring the fascinating subject of iconography and the sources behind the traditional depictions of the Nativity of Christ in medieval Art.  Then we introduce you to the diarist and parson James Woodforde, looking at some of his diary entries and the vivid glimpse they give of the way this Norfolk clergyman celebrated Christmas in the Georgian period.  Continuing with the theme of celebration, in the last article we explore the Georgian love for spiced wine, or as they called it ‘punch’.  We even give you a recipe for a punch that both Charles Dickens and Parson Woodforde would have known and enjoyed.
