WINCHESTER AND THE REFORMATION EXHIBITION

Beginning in the German town of Wittenberg, Martin Luther’s protest against the medieval Catholic Church quickly developed into a movement that transformed religion, society and culture in many parts of Europe. This exhibition examines the impact of the Reformation on Winchester College, bringing together a wealth of objects, books and documents from the 15th and 16th centuries. Highlights include a royal tapestry, a rare alabaster carving of Thomas Becket, and one of the most important pieces of English medieval silver.

Lamb of God

'Tapestry fragment with an image of the Lamb of God,
made in Belgium c. 1480, probably for the baptism of Prince Arthur in Winchester Cathedral.’
