Via Crucis

14th April 2017


Via Crucis

Dr Fergus Wilde, parishioner at Huddersfield's Holy Redeemer Parish has sent us a scan of an image to treasure as we mark the Triduum.

 

This circa 1500 Paris-printed book of hours shows the Way of the Cross in miniatures in the margin.  It is one of many mediaeval manuscripts and early printed books in the collection of the oldest public library in the English-speaking world: Chetham's Library in Manchester.
