EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative image captures the awe-inspiring interior of the Latin Chapel in Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, home to the revered shrine of St Frideswide. Dating back to the 1840s, this photograph offers a glimpse into the rich history and spiritual significance of this ancient place of worship. St Frideswide, also known as Frithuswith, Frideswide, Fritheswith, Frevisse, or Fris, was an English princess and abbess, born around 650 AD. She is believed to have lived during the early medieval period and is renowned for her dedication to faith and learning. St Frideswide is the patron saint of Oxford and the University of Oxford, making this cathedral a place of great importance for the city and its academic community. The shrine, located in the Latin Chapel, is a testament to the enduring legacy of this remarkable woman. The Gothic architecture of the cathedral is on full display in this image, with its soaring pillars, intricately carved columns, and elegant arches creating a sense of grandeur and reverence. The central focus of the photograph is the ornate tomb and effigy of St Frideswide, which lies beneath a beautiful canopy adorned with intricate designs. The Latin Chapel, with its stunning interior, serves as a fitting resting place for this revered saint. The image invites us to reflect on the history of this remarkable woman and the role she played in the development of Oxford as a center of learning and spirituality. The photograph, taken in the mid-19th century, offers a unique perspective on the enduring beauty and significance of this historic cathedral and the legacy of St Frideswide.
