Church Monuments Society


Latest Journal Volume XXXV

  • 2020

The 2020 volume of our Journal reflects much of the activities of the Society before lockdown. Ian Bass writes on the identification of a medieval monument in Hereford Cathedral, an article based on his entry in our last essay competition. Sophie Oosterwijk reflects our European interests with an article on the lost tomb of a margrave of Baden. Roger Bowdler's study of a resurrection monument in Egham is based on a lecture at the 2019 AGM, and David Hale's discussion of poetic evidence for medieval Welsh monuments and burial practices was a lecture at a day school in Brecon. There is another Welsh article, Bob Silvester on vernacular wall monuments in the southern Welsh marches. Edward Impey looks at the creaton of memory in the Cumnor monument to Anthony Forster. Wide-ranging reviews and a tribute to the late Igrid Roscoe conclude the volume.
