Most of the art from the Dark Age of Northen Europe survived because it was held by the Church and so came under the protection of God.


The Alfred Jewel, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.


The inscription reads, "AELFRED MEC HEHT GEWYRCAN", meaning 'Alfred ordered me made'. The jewel's function was to be the handle for an Ivory or Wood pointer stick for following words when reading a book.

It is one of the staffs that Alfred the Great sent to each bishopric along with a copy of his translation of Pope Gregory book Pastoral Care, saying in his preface to the book.
"And I will send a copy to every bishop's see in my kingdom, and in each book there is an aestel of 50 mancusses and I command, in God's name, that no man take the staff from the book, nor the book from the church"

Dave.

Re: Surviving

Very nice portraits, Dave. I like all the hatching, it's called hatching, eh?
Is #5 the same person as depicted in the jewel?

Re: Surviving

Hi Libbey, that sort of hatching is called raining and should be avoided at all costs.
Glad you picked out the family resemblance Libbey, actually No5 is the grandfather of the person in the jewel!

If you love those misbegotten strokes Anthony you probably need the advice in Pope Gregory book on Pastoral Care.
