In the 14th century, a celestial rose bloomed in Paradiso, Canto 31. The saintly throng formed a magnificent rose in the empyrean, radiating divine beauty and grace. As we delve into this era, we uncover captivating glimpses of history. One such glimpse takes us to St. Stephen's Chapel, where a reconstructed wall painting depicts an illustrious lineup of figures from the 14th century. From Thomas Woodstock to Edward, The Black Prince; their presence evokes tales of chivalry and power that shaped the course of England's history. Amidst these noble figures stands Isabelle of France, Queen consort of King Edward I. A portrait from the 19th century captures her regal essence as she gazes upon us with poise and elegance. The glory of God resounds through "Gloria in excelsis Deo, " a chromolithograph that transports us to heavenly realms filled with angelic voices praising His name. Otto IV, Margrave of Brandenburg and his wife Hedwig also grace our journey through time. A color lithograph showcases their union amidst medieval grandeur and opulence. The Apocalypse Tapestry or Apocalypse of Angers unravels before our eyes like an epic tale woven into fabric. Created between 1375-80, it tells stories steeped in biblical prophecy and human struggle against impending doom. Geoffrey Chaucer himself makes an appearance at the court of King Edward III in a vivid color lithograph. This literary genius left an indelible mark on English literature with his timeless works like "The Canterbury Tales. " As we explore ecclesiastical artistry, parclose screens at St Mary's Church in Worstead captivate us with their intricate designs while rood screens transport us back to medieval worship spaces filled with devotion and reverence.
