Seite 24 - When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.
Seite 24 - ... with the picture of Mary on one side of our Saviour, and that of St. John on the other. Two archangels, glittering with gold, stood, one by...
Seite 8 - Cross affords sufficient proof that originally, not the figures only, but the entire surface of the stone 'work was thus enriched, the figures having best preserved these remains of colouring. The colours used were vermilion, blue, and gold. The gilding may be traced in every part, — on the ribs of the groining, &c. but the vermilion being the most durable, has retained its rich hue, while the blue has faded to pale grey. The dresses of the figures were for the most part painted vermilion; the...
Seite 8 - ... the disruption and fall of important portions. The lower story was filled up with solid masonry upon its re-erection, for the purpose of support. The size of the original central column is therefore not ascertained ; but Mr. Norton has judged it most accordant to the spirit of the design to make it as light as is consistent with safe construction, bearing in mind that the superincumbent weight is very considerable. The form of the arch in this stage is flat, being segmental, and nearly approaching...

Seite 10 - The modern Cross is divided into four separate stages. The lower, composed of the open groined space, is square in plan, the groining ribs dying on to a central octagonal column, which they connect with the four angular buttresses, and also immediately support the lower pedestals, through whose mullioned spaces the play of light produces a good effect : a kind of rough groining shaft attaches the open work to the central construction. " The second tier is composed of the niches and projecting canopies,...
Seite 67 - Attwood of the Vine Tree At the first time erected me And freely he did this bestow Strange travellers the way to show Six generations past and gone.
Seite 8 - ... its being made as light as is consistent with safe construction, bearing in mind that the superincumbent weight is very considerable. The form of the arch in this stage is flat, being segmental, and nearly approaching to a four-centred arch. The ogee arch being high, a large spa'ndrel space is thus left for foliation. The crockets and finial are unusually large, and very boldly carved ; the character of the trefoil open panelling of the lower pedestals is late, and the whole detail and design...
