The Art of the Gloucester Candlestick with Dr Janina Ramirez

The Gloucester Candlestick is a unique masterpiece of English Medieval metalwork.  Made for St Peter’s Abbey (later Gloucester Cathedral), between 1107 and 1113, it comes from a key turning point between cultures in England at the time.  It straddles the divide between the Anglo Saxon and the Norman eras.  Join Dr Janina Ramirezas she reveals the candlestick’s fascinating place in art history. Learn more about this beautiful object from the frontier between Anglo Saxon and Norman, and between heaven and hell.
