The tales these walls could tell... This is the abandoned fortress of Slimnic, also known as Stolzenburg. It was completed at the beginning of the 14th century, as a refuge place for the Saxon communities in the area. . . . #gorganthe . #medievalchurch #medievalfortress #ruins #history #archaeology #travelers #placestosee #romania #sibiu #slimnic #discoversibiuromania #abandonedplaces #beautifularchitecture #medievalbuildings #touristineurope #tovisit #stolzenburg #walls_talking #architecturephotography
East façade of the former Romanesque abbey of Santa Maria d’Àneu, c. 1050. Sad to say but until 1923 the magnificent apse was decorated by important frescoes, dated from 1090, depicting elaborated and sophisticated stories of the Old and New Testaments, attributed to an unknown painter, probably from Lombardia. Today, the frescoes are exhibited in the largest art museum of Barcelona. #santamariadaneu #guinguetadaneu #escalarre #pallars #pallarssobirà #pallarssobira #huntingromanesquechurches #altpirineu #pirineuscatalans #pyrenees #pyrénées #pirineus #medievalarchitecture #romanesquearchitecture #romanesque #romanesquechurch #romanesqueart #architectureromane #artroman #romàniccatalà #romànic #romanic #romanik #romanico #medievaleurope #medievalchurch #hiking #egliseromane #artroman

All dressed up and nowhere to go, look at you in your glad rags. Henry Ford said that when he went into meetings with folks more powerful and richer than him he used to imagine them wearing polka dot underwear. Just saying 😉. #chesttomb #effigies #oldchurch #oldchurches #church #churchhunting #churchvisit #churches #churchesoftheworld #parishchurch #churchlovers #anglicanchurch #churchesofinstagram #churching #churchporn #beautifulchurch #churchphotography #countrychurch #villagechurch #stonechurch #englishchurch #churchcrawling #ruralchurch #churchofengland #medievalchurch #churchinterior #churchmasters #churchvibes #churchthings

Ermita de Nuestra Señora del Valle (S. XII). Monasterio de Rodilla, provincia de Burgos (Castilla y León). Interesante ejemplar de arte románico levantado en el lugar por donde discurría la antigua calzada romana que unía las ciudades de Astorga y Burdeos. #romanico #burgos #castillayleon #bureba #arteviajero #landscape #church #iglesia #ermita #romanesque #arte #arquitectura #medieval #edadmedia #románico #awesome #travellover #travelphotographer #monasterioderodilla #wanderlust #countryside #hiking #kunst #medievalchurch #oldchurches #building #historiadelarte
Took this snap the other day when it wasn't so grim. How lush is it to work opposite this? Original 15th century tower and all! Though, there was a church in this place prior to that, it was probably destroyed during the peasants revolt of 1381. The first written record is from 1242 of a priest of Fulham being presented by King Henry III! I'll try and get a more clear picture of behind that gorgeous tree one day.
Not a portable cell for the very sane Bourchier Wrey family who definitely had no delusions of grandeur especially in their tomb creation, but a family pew. Definitely a pew, Sir 😉 There’s one argument that these family pews were in some sense a replacement for the family chapels destroyed in the Reformation, giving the local big family a signifier to allay their insecurities (admittedly not how the argument puts it. That burbles on about high status. But as a Buddhist monk once said ‘when you see someone driving a Ferrari that person is showing their desperate need for love’). And then from these family pews came the box pews. A nice little train of evolution and one I wouldn’t disagree with. #familypew #churchpew #pew #oldchurch #oldchurches #church #churchhunting #churchvisit #churches #churchesoftheworld #parishchurch #churchlovers #anglicanchurch #churchesofinstagram #churching #churchporn #beautifulchurch #churchphotography #countrychurch #villagechurch #stonechurch #englishchurch #churchcrawling #ruralchurch #churchofengland #medievalchurch #churchinterior #churchmasters #churchvibes #churchthings
These two ladies stare at each other from the two parts of the screen door in the south aisle. If they didn’t have much to say each other to begin with there’s a piece or ten of their minds they want to exchange now. #16thcentury #roodscreen #carving #woodcarving #carvedart #carpentry #woodwork #woodcarver #woodcarve #woodcarved #woodcarvings #woodcarvingart #medievalcraft #medievalcarving #folkart #木彫り #maderatallada #резноедерево #彫刻 #tallado #조각 #резьбаподереву #church #churchhunting #churchvisit #churches #devonchurch #medievalchurch #religiousart
My nomadic working life means that some days my office window can be very beautiful. Today is one of those days. . . .#norwich #stmartinatpalace #stainedglass #wintersun #medievalchurch
A bit of a rarity in Devon are Decorated windows and this one is a sweet little thing bringing to mind flowerheads at the top of those loooong mullions (the long straight bits). Interesting, arguably, as it doesn’t have the grace of some Norfolk windows probably because there just wasn’t a huge amount of Decorated work down here and so no big tradition. Very nice though 😊. #churchwindow #decorated #oldchurch #oldchurches #church #churchhunting #churchvisit #churches #churchesoftheworld #parishchurch #churcharchitecture #churchlovers #anglicanchurch #churchesofinstagram #churching #churchporn #beautifulchurch #churchphotography #countrychurch #villagechurch #stonechurch #englishchurch #churchcrawling #ruralchurch #churchofengland #medievalchurch #churchmasters #churchvibes #churchthings
Near Wiston, at Buncton there is a real hidden gem. Through a woods, down some steps, over a stream, a short climb the other side and this little 11th century chapel appears as you leave the trees. It has an interesting history, it’s walls patched together with roman, saxon and norman masonry as well as some stonework from a nearby priory. There’s a small patch of medieval fresco inside but the really sad thing is the void left where a ‘sheela na gig’ carving was destroyed in 2004. You can see where it should have been. It’s suspected that a parishioner was to blame, having a problem with pagan imagery within a christian place of worship. #sheelanagig #medievalchurch #buncton #southdowns #fresco #fromwhereiride #medievalbritain #sussex
Trip to the provincial Finnish town of Lohja, taking in the medieval church with its 16th century naive murals, and the new postmodernist library. #pyhälaurinkirkko #lohjachurch #lohja #finnisharchitecture #medievalchurch #lahdelmamahlamäki #lohjacitylibrary #churchmural

York Minster is one of the world's greatest cathedrals. A masterpiece of stone and stained glass, its vast spaces have echoed with the glory of worship and heavenly music for nearly one thousand years. (York Minster official guide) York é a magnífica Minster, mas também é muito mais. Os romanos a fundaram em 71 AD e a cercaram com muralhas que ali estão até hoje. A cidade dentro das muralhas é cheia de pequenas ruas com lojinhas de doces, chocolates, cafés, restaurantes, artes. Dentro dessa muralha está a região da famosa Shambles, rua que inspirou a criação do Beco Diagonal. Pitoresca e tortuosa de um jeito único, tem encantado pessoas há mais de 1000 anos. York é linda tanto dentro de suas muralhas como fora delas. ❤ ◽◽◽◽◽◽◽◽◽◽◽◽◽◽◽◽ #yorkminster #yorkminstercathedral #yorkuk #yorkshire #yorkshire_lovers #photosofbritain #gloriousbritain #instabritain #bbcbritain #genuinebritain #beautifulbritain #mybritain #capturingbritain #visitbritain #explorebritain #lovebritain #uk_greatshots #gothicarchitecture #amazingplacestovisit #walkinguk #genuinebritain #igrejaspelomundo #igrejasemfoco #oldarchitecture #medievalchurch #medievaltimes
The church was originally built in Fortun in Sogn, a village near inner or eastern end of Sognefjord around the year 1150. In the 19th century the church was threatened by demolition, as were hundreds of other stave churches in Norway. The church was bought & saved by moving it in pieces to Bergen in 1883. Outside the church stands a stone cross from Tjora in Sola. #fantoft #stave #church #fantoftstavechurch #bergen #norway #medieval #medievalchurch #beautiful #snow #explore #adventure #travel #beautiful #clouds #love #throwback

Today is St Hilary’s Day which, according to folklore is the coldest day of the year. St Hilary was a Bishop of Poitiers in the 4th century. Long after his death, on 13th January 1086, his feast day was marked by a long hard frost. On the same day in 1205 an even worse cold took hold that froze the Thames and meant ale and wine had to be sold by weight as they were permanently solid! Today, in London, it was about 10 degrees Celsius. So, if this is the coldest day of the year, then we can expect a hot year ahead...! The photo? Is just a freezing shot of St Michael’s, Llanfihangel Rogiet, Monmouthshire. #llanfihangelrogiet #monmouthshire #tower #architecture #archilovers #medieval #medievalchurch #sthilary #sthilarysday #snow #snowyscene #bishopofpoitiers #freezing #frozen #churchcrawling #churchesoftheworld #friendsoffriendlesschurches #savingchurches
Detail from the Chaldon mural, Surrey (1170-1200). The mural depicts the last judgement. In this detail, two demons hold a bridge of spikes across which dishonest traders have to cross... From the right, the blacksmith is missing his anvil, the mason his mortar (is this the only representation of a hawk in medieval wall-paintings??), the spinners and the potters all missing essential tools of their trade. Below, demons torture souls for sins of lust and anger. While in the middle, representing avarice, a usurer, sitting in flames, has had his eyes plucked out and is prodded with irons, as coins pour from his open mouth into a pouch and he is forced to keep counting his money... #chaldon #wallpaintings #romanesque #salvation #lastjudgement #sevendeadlysins #sinner #potter #spinner #mason #blacksmith #jawsofhell #doom #demon #heritage #history #art #churchcrawling #medievalart #surrey #medievalchurch
