About the Author:

Nigel Saul is at Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, London.

Review:


"Saul's writing is extremely clear, authoritative but never uninteresting. The volume is beautifully produced in the best old-fashioned academic style, with real footnotes and many illustrations on the actual pages that discuss them. Advanced undergraduates, and certainly anyone eith a level of comprehension beyond that, have every reason to enjoy, as well as profit from, reading it."--History

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2001. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In this innovative and compelling book Nigel Saul approaches the world of the medieval gentry through the monuments they left behind them. The Cobham family left the largest and most spectacular collection of brasses in Britain in their church at Cobham, and other magnificent brasses in Lingfield, and elsewhere. Medieval brasses have hitherto been studied chiefly from an antiquarian or technical perspective; Nigel Saul for the first time shows how they served as a link between the living and the dead. Commemoration was inseparable from the wider dynamics of society. Through the brasses and through family history he takes us to the heart of gentry aspirations and fears, successes and disappointments. This extensively illustrated study offers a new paradigm for the study of medieval church monuments and makes a major contribution to our understanding of gentry culture.
