Full description

In the introductory essay of the catalogue, the history of the use of textiles in church interiors and as vestments is explored, with summaries of the interests of the members of the Rothschild family who acquired the spectacular woven and embroidered textiles now in the collection at Waddesdon. The different types of objects in the 2014 exhibition are discussed in detail in chapters on altar frontals, banners, cushions, hangings and pictures, furniture, fragments and accessories, and image robes.
