I was very excited to find this #misericord in #tewksburyabbey These medieval style of carving is found underneath folding chairs in a church. Carvings can be anything from birds and plants to humorous objects. And this pew had one of these naughty images underneath one of the seats #england 🇬🇧 Древняя вырезка на деревянных полках, размещенных под церковным стульями. Обычным мотивом на таких вырезках были птички и растения, а, иногда, как в данном случае, и что-то позабавнее #англия #тьюксбери
A woodcarver’s depiction of a woodcarving workshop. This 600 year old carving shows a workshop almost similar to how our workshop looks today. Something apparently never change.

Father Lord , I am praying desperately that You keep my heart and help me to have faith like that of Abraham,Daniel, & of Noah. Amen - If your faith is shaking fake a look at Hebrews chapter 11 for a recap of Gods servants that were faced with great tribulations but through faith were able to overcome them. Have a great week everyone 🙏🏾 #dailydevotional #dailydevotion #christianity #love #beauty #fear #purpose #achieve #spiritual #motivation #blessed #bless #jesus #jesuschrist #faith #dieu #croit #croyance #chretien #chretienlifestyle #misericord
#misericord and #rosarybead ... AMAZING #medievalart . Each half of this hinged #rosary #bead is not much more than 3cm across. Look at that detail! And about that misericord.

Lincoln Cathedral. Angel Choir. 14th century misericord wood carving of birds and a woman in medieval dress! hawking with her dog. Very characterful and nicely done. Some Lincoln choir seating contains misericords with medieval carvings adorning them. When the choir stalls were upright when clergy were standing, the misericords provided some relief for the weary during long services whereby one could sit back on the ledges whilst still appearing standing. The carved images survive all over the country and depict a huge variety of images, many reflecting the everyday life of the average medieval citizen (domestic brawls, animals, religious imagery). They are like medieval Polaroid’s to real folk, wood chippy’s in particular. #christmas #church #lincoln #lincolncathedral #architecture #city #medieval #art #artistsoninstagram #medieval #cathedral #lincolnshire #winter #igers #igersdaily #cathedralsofinstagram #woodworking #wood #life #furnishing #misericord
Happy new year/ Bonne Année 🎉❤️❤️ My New Years résolution for you all is to search for Gods grace in your life. It’s easy to complain and worry but even easier to forget that God is watching over you and is going to guide you through all trials and tribulations. Before giving up on anything,anyone, or even yourself this year ask is this the devil trying to tempt me or is this God testing me ? What is the silver lining? Am I lacking faith ? Who can I turn to? Like I’ve said before my aim for this account is to share Bible verses that help me in hopes that they can help you too. I’m not here to impose or condemn but to comfort and give bidaily motivation. This year I hope to be more active here , I will organize takeovers , giveaways, and definitely post more frequently. Stay tuned for bidaily encouragement , love you all ! ❤️🙏🏾 #dailydevotional #dailydevotion #christianity #love #beauty #fear #purpose #achieve #spiritual #motivation #blessed #bless #jesus #jesuschrist #faith #dieu #croit #croyance #chretien #chretienlifestyle #misericord

Frat(er) House . Prior: The Abbot is sending you on a pilgrimage to Rome. Monk: I don’t want to go. Prior: Why not? It’s an honour to be chosen for such a journey. Monk: I’m a simple man of the cloth, I prefer the solitude of my cell. Prior: Surely, you can pray while traveling. Monk: No, there are too many distractions. Prior: You don’t have a choice Friar Elie, you have to go. Monk: But why me? Prior: Apparently, you’ve been spending too many days in the misericord room. Monk: I was confined there against my will… it took me two weeks to recover from the hot wax burns I suffered unjustly. Prior: (whispering) It was the Dean’s will after he found a copy of your book of poetry in the scriptorium. Monk: It’s a book of recipes, not poetry. Prior: You like to cook? Monk: Let’s just say I like to fraternise. Prior: I’m intrigued… what does that mean? Monk: How do I know you’re not going to rat me out to the Abbot? Prior: Meet me at the cellarium after vespers and I will prove to you that you can trust me. (later in the cellarium) Prior: (whispering) Friar Elie… over here. Monk: Well? Prior: Shhh, keep your voice down. Monk: What’s that you’re holding? Prior: A pizza recipe. Monk: May I see it? Prior: Only if you promise not to show it to the Abbot. Monk: I promise. Prior: Here it is. Monk: (after reading the recipe to himself) It looks more like a riddle. Prior: Oh, I think it’s pretty clear. Monk: Do tell. Prior: This recipe calls for friarelli and salsiccia. Monk: What kind of salsiccia? Prior: Come closer and I will show you. . #fraternity #house #monastery #prior #monk #misericord #scriptorium #frater #refectory #cellarium #vespers #italian #neapolitan #pizza #recipe #salsiccia #friarielli #friarelli #cimadirapa #broccoletti #rapini #brassicarapa #cooking #photography #food #art #modern #shortstory #writersofinstagram #roamingmusingwanderess
More #misericord s from #CarlilseCathedral (Swipe) followed by some ancient, carved #graffiti . The marks are intricate and generally well produced although some appear incomplete. These are all from the 16th or early 17th centuries. It is believed that this choir was used by guilds and merchants with many of the elaborate devices being Guild Marks. #medievalcarving #churchart #woodcarving #medievalguilds

On doit comprendre que : Par la prière, nous devons simplement nous approcher avec assurance de Dieu. Nous devons nous adresser à lui avec respect parce qu’il est notre roi, et surtout avec plein d’assurance parce qu’il est notre ami et consolateur. #dailydevotional #dailydevotion #christianity #love #beauty #fear #purpose #achieve #spiritual #motivation #blessed #bless #jesus #jesuschrist #faith #dieu #croit #croyance #chretien #chretienlifestyle #misericord

Par ce passage l’apôtre Paul nous fait comprendre clairement que oui on a des soucis c’est vrai. Que ce soit à l’école travail ou maison, mais le conseil qu’il nous donne, c’est de transformer nos soucis en prières. Si nous voulons moins nous tourmenter, nous devons prier plus ! Dès que nous commençons à nous inquiéter, arrêtons-nous et prions juste !! La prière est la clé maîtresse de toutes choses 🙏🏾 #dailydevotional #dailydevotion #christianity #love #beauty #fear #purpose #achieve #spiritual #motivation #blessed #bless #jesus #jesuschrist #faith #dieu #croit #croyance #chretien #chretienlifestyle #misericord
Hope you all had a wonderful week. Im sorry for my absence, but I’m back now. I found a quote that for me best illustrates this verse : "You would weep if you knew that your life was limited to one month, yet you laugh while you know not but it may be restricted to a day." - Yes our days are numbered but let’s not lose hope , let us fulfill our taste while we are here and not worry about when the end will be but what our life will say about us when the end does come. Have a blessed week❤️ #dailydevotional #dailydevotion #christianity #love #beauty #fear #purpose #achieve #spiritual #motivation #blessed #bless #jesus #jesuschrist #faith #dieu #croit #croyance #chretien #chretienlifestyle #misericord

The glorious choir stalls of St Gertrude's church in Leuven. The choir stalls were commissioned in 1540 by the abbott of St Gertrude's abbey, and made - probably among others - by Mathys de Wayere from Brussels. Strikingly, de Wayere brought with him his own workmen, who weren't members of the woodsculptors guild in Leuven; this led to a court case which even landed de Wayere in prison for a short while! Luckily, however, the choir stalls were eventually finished, and now they are regarded as a masterpiece of late gothic sculpture. In 1944, a German bomb was dropped on the church, and the choir was completely destroyed - including the stalls. Almost immediately the rubble was searched for every last piece of wood, and during the next 10 (!) years the stalls were meticulously reconstructed. To illustrate the incredible craftsmanship of the restauration: one tiny head, on one of the misercords, just a centimeter big, consists of 5 pieces of wood just a few millimetres wide! Thus, even though in less thorough hands they could have been lost forever, the stalls are as beautiful now as they have ever been, and - even more importantly - still almost entirely original. #leuven #louvain #gothic #gothicart #gothicarchitecture #choirstalls #choir #stalls #wood #sculpture #medieval #middleages #woodwork #woodworking #abbey #restauration #1540 #1944 #guild #prison #reconstruction #craftsmanship #craft #masterpiece #misericord #misericords
Psalms 139:23-24 If you’re struggling with something ask God to help deliver you from it. He knows you and knows your heart.

Dans Romains 8:35-36 C’est concernant l’amour de Dieu Dieu nous aimes d’un Amour indéfectible: c’est à dire, qu’il nous aimes éternellement et sans s’arrêter. Nous maintenant en tant qu’enfant de Dieu, nous ne devons pas nous laisser mentir par Satan ou quoi que ce soit afin que rien ne puisse nous séparer de l’amour de Dieu. Malgré tout ce que nous pouvons vivre ou rencontrer, que rien ne nous sépare de son Amour. #dailydevotional #dailydevotion #christianity #love #beauty #fear #purpose #achieve #spiritual #motivation #blessed #bless #jesus #jesuschrist #faith #dieu #croit #croyance #chretien #chretienlifestyle #misericord

On Saint David’s Cathedral built 1181 ..One of many misercords on the Quire... do love these carvings ..not easy to capture..on my knees and was taken by some visitors that I was praying.....nearly was..trying to get up .. a misericord being a ledge from the underside of a hinged seat in a Quire stall which, when the seat is turned upwards it gives support to someone standing who wishes to take a quick break for the legs..well worth searching out... #wales #saintdavids #catherdral #misericord #boat Ecclesiastical

One of the misericords of Lancaster Priory’s choir stalls. ‘Misericord’ ultimately derives from the Latin misericors, meaning ‘compassionate’. These ledge-like seats gave monks something to perch on during long services when they were meant to be standing. As they were usually folded down they weren’t often seen or scrutinised, so their carving is often more adventurous than in other areas of a church. - The scene in this misericord has been identified as a baptism. A man and woman kneel to the right of the font, while a priest (with a mutilated head) anoints them. The figures on the left are nuns in habits. The embroidery is the work of the priory’s own broderers. - #Lancaster #LancasterPriory #misericord #gothic #architecture #gothicarchitecture #medieval #church #history #Lancashire #heritage

Lovely old medieval misericord adapted to become an imposing seat in the sanctuary - St Andrew, East Lexham. The nearby Castle Acre Priory must be a strong contender as the original home of this misericord, pre-Reformation.

St. Nicholas, Denston, Suffolk. In common with all the best East Anglian churches, Denston is full of quality medieval woodwork. There are some excellent bench ends, mostly animals. A few misericords and a superb tie beam roof with more animals on the wall plates. #denston #denstonchurch #suffolk #suffolkchurches #villagechurch #churches #churchesofinstagram #church #churchcrawling #gothicchurch #gothicarchitecture #medieval #benchends #misericord #medievalchurch #medievalarchitecture #oldchurch #oldchurches #architecture #architecturalphotos #architectureporn #architecturalphotography

The setting-out lines inscribed into this medieval bench end suggest that this was originally intended to be part of a misericord. However, that was not to be and no chisel ever carved it. So here it is, in the chancel of St Helen’s Church, Ranworth. It is quite likely that prior to being brought here, it may have stood within the now ruinous St Benet’s Abbey. #ranworth #church #churches #history #heritage #carpentry #misericord #carving #medieval #mediaeval #craftsmanship #reformation #reuse #salvage #thebroads #norfolkbroads #stbenetsabbey #norfolk #eastanglia
A Misericord here & Winchester Catherdral in Hampshire England ..Date from the 14th century ....and is one of the largest collections to be found in the world .. A misericord (sometimes named mercy seat, like the Biblical object) is a small wooden structure formed on the underside of a folding seat in a church which, when the seat is folded up, is intended to act as a shelf to support a person in a partially standing position during long periods of pray .....#pray #god #photosofengland #churchcrawling #winchester #hampshire #england #churchcrawling #england #misericord #medieval #choir #quire #walkinguk Ecclesiastical
Made a small acquaintance yesterday. He was not amused. #malvern #misericord
The 15th century misericords in the Abbatiale d'Hastière (Abbey church of Hastière) are the oldest in Belgium. The carvings are quite nice. The first one symbolizes Marriage so adequately, with all the stress it brings along 😉 The abbey was founded in the 11th century on the banks of the Meuse river in the south of Belgium. The church of the monastery was built from 1033 to 1035 in the so-called Mosan-Romanesque style. This pious place was the scene of a shocking murder, back in 1199. The times were turbulent, the Crusades were organized everywhere creating tensions between monasteries and abbeys. To solve the quarrels at the Hastière abbey, the dean of a neighbouring school, Walhère, is sent in by the prince-bishops of Liège. After he has appeased the spirits he is brought back at night, by boat, by one of the vicars. In the middle of the river, the latter kills Walhère with a violent stroke of an oar on the head and then throws his body in the Meuse. At the place the body is found, a fountain springs up in the river, which never dries up. Although never canonized by the catholic church, Saint Walhère is venerated across the region. In at least three villages, each year processions proceeded by fanfares are held around his dying day, 23rd of June. These attract large crowds, afterwards enjoying a very lively fair which goes on for days. If this might cause any headaches, Saint Walhère can be invoked to cure them! Between 1260 and 1264 the abbey church was enlarged by replacing the Romanesque apse with a larger Gothic choir and apse. In 1793 the monks were expelled and the monastery was destroyed. Only the church survived, as a parish church devoted to Saint Peter. . . #abbatiale #hastiere #belgium #loves_united_belgium #art_creative_pictures #super_art_channel #be_one_architecture #traveling_arte #fa_sacral #be_one_sacro #be_one_details #timeless_unlimited #ig_monumentalworld #world_bestangels #ars_sacra #r_a_d_members #loves_monuments #thehub_gothic #catalogodarte #arts_illife #art_photogroup #total_sacro #tv_churchandgraves #estaes_arte #thehub_church #barocco_photogroup #vivoartworld #artenelmondo #total_artgallery #misericord
A few pre-Reformation remains from St Nicholas, North Walsham: panels from two separate screens (each largely destroyed) and a wonderfully lively wildman, clutching his cudgel.

Medieval carving in the rafters of St Mary’s Hereford. Supposedly to remain unnoticed for eternity, harmlessly out-of-view. Sadly, there’s a mezzanine café up there now and you can’t fail to notice his painstakingly rendered nether-parts. 📸 Gillian Wells #netherparts #bum #bumout #misericord #carving #churchcarving #flashing #rude #medieval #medievalbum
Is it a dragon? Found on a misericord in the chapel of Magdalen College Oxford. Misericords are little ledges that monks could lean on while they were singing their prayers if they got tired and they are always worth looking at because the carvings can be quite surprising sometimes!

· Wintringham, St. Peter · Misericords are the name given to the shelves or ledges added to the underside of seats, provided for clergymen to lean against as they sung the divine offices of the medieval church. Throughout England and Europe there are some astonishing and sometimes frankly by our standards, bizarre images drawn straight from the medieval imagination to be seen beneath these seats. As priests didn't really require them for the performance of Mass, misericords don't often appear in parish churches as often as they do in cathedrals or collegiate churches. So why are they at Wintringham? These misericords are Victorian. Following the various religious reforms of the 16th century, changes to the liturgy of the established church meant that misericords were no longer needed. With the dissolution of the monasteries in the 1530s, their numbers began to diminish. A new liturgy was shaping and reordering the church interior, and so they largely disappeared (Laud tried to reintroduce them in the 1630s) only to be brought back in the 1800's when the Victorians ushered in their own church reforms. A wave of medievalism gripped the nation, affecting a great many aspects of Victorian life from architecture, art, philosophy and religion. The need for a choir returned to the church and the woodcarver was once again turning his tools to the images of the weird and wonderful.
