The Monuments Man: Essays in Honour of Jerome Bertram

Edited by Christian Steer

This Festschrifthonours the late Jerome Bertram of the Oxford Oratory and former Vice-President of the Monumental Brass Society, who admired, researched, lectured and wrote about monumental brasses and incised slabs for over fifty years. The essays in this volume represent the latest research from scholars who shed new light on all types of monument –cross-slabs, effigies, incised slabs and brasses, canopied tombs –as individual case studies and regional studies. They also consider the production process, workshops, antiquarian studies and the evi-dence for lost monuments not only in England and Wales but across mainland Europe. They range chronologically from as early as Christ’s tomb in ancient Jerusalem through the Roman, medieval and early modern periods and conclude with a study of a brass in nineteenth-century Oxford.
