    It’s 900 years since King Henry I founded the Augustinian Abbey of St Mary in Cirencester. It replaced a pre conquest/Saxon church that also continued in use until the new Abbey was dedicated in 1176. During 2017 look out for Abbey 900 events that are to be staged in Cirencester. I have painted this picture to commemorate the issuing of orders by Henry I to begin the building work. I am hoping to follow it up with a MERRY ILLUMINATIONS image of the Dedication service. If time allows!! This image could be produced as a giclee print for dedicated followers of Abbey 900 Cirencester. Contact me for details if interested.

    Although considered by some to be an effete and degenerate practice, “an hote bath of swete watre” presented medieval bathers with the opportunity to clean and preen themselves, while medicinal baths were also prescribed to treat the symptoms and ease the pains of the sick. Manuscripts list when and with whom baths might be taken, and give details of the most effective herbs and potions to be added to the water. The rich might bathe in marble or stone baths. More commonly, portable wooden tubs were used.
