Oxford Medieval Inscriptions

By CMS in Recent publications

Boydell & Brewer have a special offer for the late Jerome Bertram’s book Medieval Inscriptions: The Epigraphy of the City of Oxford.

Inscriptions made in the mediaeval city and university of Oxford have come down to us in many forms and types of material – stone, glass, wood, metal, paint, ceramics – even textiles. There are a variety of handwriting styles, and inscriptions were written in Latin, French, or English. Some can be seen in their original context, such as the church or chapel as the donor intended; others have been moved to new locations, often in order to protect and conserve them; others survive only in the notes and drawings of longdeceased antiquaries. Now, for the first time, the richness and variety of mediaeval Oxford’s epigraphy are revealed in this comprehensive catalogue of inscriptions from the twelfth century to the mid-sixteenth.
