Anglican

Anglicans form the family of Christians closely related to the Archbishop of Canterbury. Whilst tracing their inheritance back to Christ and the earliest Christians and to the ancient Roman Catholic church, the sixteenth century Reformation was a crucial moment for Anglicanism.

Bishop

‘Bishop’ comes from the Greek word for ‘overseer’. So a bishop is a senior Christian minister authorised to have oversight for God’s people. As well as duties given to deacons and priests, bishops confirm and ordain.

Holy Communion

At Holy Communion blessed bread and wine is shared, by which we receive the body and blood of Jesus Christ. The congregation gives thanks for Jesus’ life, his death and resurrection and his continuing presence. See also Eucharist.

Cathedral Tiles

St David's Cathedral: Teiliau Tyddewi – The Tiles of St Davids

by Martin Crampin, artist and art historian, 10 June, 7-8.30pm

The patterns found on the late medieval ceramic tiles in St David’s Cathedral were the starting point for a series of new works by artist Martin Crampin. Sections of an initial piece of work was exhibited in local churches as part of the annual Art on the Faith Trail event and subsequently brought together in an exhibition at the cathedral with additional images based on the tiles.

This online talk will examine the pattern and imagery of the tiles, which were made in around 1500, and consider their rearrangement in the nineteenth century and the copies made for the restored interior. Just as the Gothic Revival was caught between an authenticity to medieval form and its reinvention, this new work also occupies a creative tension between reproduction and abstraction, while drawing attention to aspects of late medieval decorative arts that have often been overlooked.
