About this Item

Folio. 75 pp. of text followed by 17 pp. of plates. Original paper-covered boards. Heavy age wear and staining throughout binding. Backstrip missing. Boards starting to separate from binding but still holding. Corners bumped and worn. Illustrated title-page. Sporadic foxing throughout. Illustrated with 11 full-page, 1 double-page, and 2 fold-out plates of engravings and plans of the church. One of the fold-out plates is a facsimile of a document printed in black, red, and gold. All plates are protected by a tissue guard. Text in Danish. Binding in poor, interior in overall good condition. Remarkable book on the former Benedictine monastery of Ringsted which was the mausoleum for the dynasty of the Valdemars from the 12th to the 14th centuries. Because of a wish for self-representation as head of an age-old dynasty, King Frederick II of Denmark had royal medieval necropoles restored during the 1570's and 1580's. This particular church was restored at the King's orders because many kings and queens are buried there. The restoration, comprising a renewal of the royal tombstones and a number of the wall-paintings with portraits of the kings and queens, had to a lesser degree its parallel in Ribe, where in 1576 new epitaphs for the kings Erik Emune and Christoffer I were painted with adjoining inscriptions, composed by the historian Hans Svaning.
