William Tyndale, (1943). Creator: Unknown Featured Image

William Tyndale, (1943). Creator: Unknown

William Tyndale, (1943). Undated portrait of a man, previously believed to be English translator and martyr William Tyndale (c1494-1536). Tyndale set out to translate the Bible into common English. Because his translation was unauthorised by the Church, and because of his support for the Reformation, Tyndale was forced to work on his project in Germany. Printed in Cologne in 1525, Tyndale's New Testament was the first English translation to take advantage of the new medium of printing, enabling it to have a wide distribution. It was banned by the authorities however, and Tyndale was burned at the stake at Vilvorde, Belgium in 1536. Painting in the collection of Hertford College, Oxford. From "The English Bible", by Sir Herbert Grierson. [Collins, London, 1943]

The Ceremony at St. Paul's, London, 1897. Artist: E&S Woodbury Featured Image

The Ceremony at St. Paul's, London, 1897. Artist: E&S Woodbury

The Ceremony at St. Paul's, London, 1897. The photograph was taken immediately after the conclusion of the Service, when Her Majesty (whose face is clearly seen) turned to receive the congratulations of the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge. The latter is in the act of addressing the Queen: the Prince is close behind him. The Princess of Wales and Princess Christian are the other occupants of the carriage; the latter holds her fan to screen her face from the sun. The Archbishop of Canterbury (Dr. Temple) stands directly above the Queen. Queen Victoria (1819-1901) celebrated her Diamond Jubilee (60th anniversary of her reign - June 1837-June 1897). Her reign of 63 years and seven months was longer than that of any previous British monarch. Here her carriage is seen outside St Paul's Cathedral. From Sixty Years A Queen: The Story of Her Majesty's Reign, by Sir Herbert Maxwell. [Harmsworth Bros, Limited, London, c1897]

Funeral of H.R.H. The Duke of Clarence, January 1892, (c1897). Artist: E&S Woodbury

The Albert Memorial Chapel Windsor, on the Occasion of the Funeral of H.R.H. The Duke of Clarence, January 1892, (c1897). The Duke's coffin stands between the tomb of the Prince Consort at the further end and that of the Duke of Albany (who died in 1884) at this end of the Chapel'. Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence and Avondale (1864-1892), died of pneumonia before he was thirty. The eldest son of Albert Edward, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII), Prince Albert Victor's life has been wrapped in secrecy and scandal. He is thought to have visited a male brothel, to have fathered an illegitimate child by a married woman, and was for a time rumoured to have been Jack the Ripper. From Sixty Years A Queen: The Story of Her Majesty's Reign, by Sir Herbert Maxwell. [Harmsworth Bros, Limited, London, c1897]
