Saints and Kings at Medieval Melrose Abbey

George Henderson

The author is a fellow of Downing College, Cambridge, and Head of the Department of Art History in the University of Cambridge. Taking as a starting point an appraisal of part of a relief, he expands the context to embrace the history of the Cistercians and their attitudes to art and architecture at the time, and allows other statues and imagery to help in the analysis of the relief. This leads to a more definite suggestion as to a place it might have originate as well as the purpose for the relief.
