The symbol entered Renaissance magic and modern symbolism via this iconographic lineage. Today it is often taken to symbolize introspection, the Eternal Return or cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself. It also represents the infinite cycle of nature's endless creation and destruction. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In his celebrated "Apologia" of 1125, Saint Bernard of Clairvaux queried the diabolical purpose of the monstrous creatures depicted so frequently in Romanesque cloister capitals. Revealing through the details of his observation that he himself had no doubt looked a little too closely at what he describes as that “marvelous deformed beauty, that beautiful deformity”, he feels deeply compromised by their occurrence in places intended for deep monastic contemplation. The presence of frightening hybrid beasts, obscenely gesturing figures, and other seemingly profane subjects side by side with depictions of biblical scenes in medieval art went on virtually from the 7th to the 16th centuries, and yet has never been satisfactorily explained... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire. It has been the residence of the Berkeley family since the 1100s, making it the oldest castle to be continuously occupied by the same family. It was given to them possibly as a gesture of goodwill by Henry II for backing his inheritance of the throne, as well as having the aim of defending nearby Bristol, Gloucester and the Welsh border. It is thought to be the location of Edward II’s murder. After being deposed by his wife Queen Isabella and her lover and ally Roger Mortimer, he was held captive here for five months in 1327. Soon after his death, rumours circulated that he was murdered by a red hot poker, though it seems most likely he was left to starve and dehydrate, which would have ensured that Mortimer did not have blood on his hands. The supposed cell where this happened can be seen through a window in the castle. #berkeleycastle #berkeley #castle #gloucestershire #statelyhome #medieval #gardens #monarchy #legend #12thcentury #monarchy #edwardii #henryii #mortimer #englishheritage

Not a cloud in the sky! ☀️ Berkeley Castle, home to the Berkeley family since the 12th century when it was granted to Robert Fitzharding by King Henry II for supporting his claim to the throne. The family remained important in medieval England and King Edward II was held prisoner and later murdered at the Castle. The Berkeley's, one of the ancient families of England, can trace their ancestry to Eadnoth the Constable, a high ranking saxon noble at the court of Edward the Confessor, who managed to find favour with William the Conqueror after the Norman invasion. 🏰👑🛡 #berkeleycastle #berkeley #gloucestershire #castle #statelyhome #manorhouse #historicbuilding #historichome #medieval #architecture #12thcentury #garden #cannon #aristocracy #nobility #monarchy #king #edwardii #henryii #baron #saxon #williamtheconqueror #englishhistory

Sonné setté! Blissé sonné, Sweté skyé wœmb! Blissé sonné, setté sonné, Skyé, earthé, tœmb. ______________________________ Skaldic quatrain, anon., c. late 12th Century. ______________________________ Mincing Letitia was quite frankly diabetic with anguish when I saw her on Monday and you would be too if Scary Mary Monases had taken your insulin for her hokey-cokey cokey-blokey narcotics party and grinned as she mashed cockles into your armpits and whispered in your ear ‘pit(t)y she’s a tralllllop pit(t)y she’s a mule’ and braided your hair with nettles and fed you her nutri-bulleted psoriasis peelings and rubbed your crumbling gnashers with her mildewed manky toes and said again and again and again ‘you’re mine till you die yes mine till you die’ but when push comes to shove we all have off days and what’s key is finding a way through those off days yes finding a coping mechanism like sunset walks or a tourniquet or badger trapping or knife crime and it’s not too late for you to make a choice for a better future but it’s probably too late for Letitia as in this instance it turns out that the diabetes was not entirely metaphorical so there we go you win some you lose some and fare ye well Letitia. Sonné setté. Fare ye well. _____________________________________ #skaldic #poetry #12thcentury #sunset #letitia #tourniquet #mary #therewego #youwinsomeyoulosesome #metaphor

The presence of frightening beasts, hybrid animals, obscenely gesturing figures, and other seemingly profane subjects side by side with depictions of biblical scenes in medieval art went on virtually from the 7th to the 16th centuries, and, as perhaps illustrated at Sant Joan de Boi, across diverse media (not just as statuary in church cloisters, but as murals and in illustrated manuscripts), and yet has never been satisfactorily explained. Apart from Bernard’s complaint, there is virtually nothing written contemporaneously about the phenomenon, which thereby remains perennially open to interpretation, often by two opposed and entrenched camps: those who see these images as negatively instructive “lessons”, and those who see them as protective talismans derived from both local and Roman traditions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These variations of the Ouroboros of Boi are produced by repetitively passing a wave through the image and varying its parameters. I call them “ondagrams” after the Spanish and Italian word for wave (“onda”) and the suffix “-gram”, from Greek and Latin, meaning a drawing or something written or recorded.

This image may not be used, reposted or reproduced in any way without prior written permission from the copyright holder. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Vall de Boí is a narrow, steep-sided valley in the province of Lleida, in the autonomous community of Catalonia, northern Spain. The valley is best known for its nine Early Romanesque churches, making it the site of the densest concentration of Romanesque architecture in Europe. It was designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO on 30 November 2000. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Moorish conquest of Spain did not penetrate the high valleys of the Pyrenees. The first Christian counties in the region were set out in the 9th century, in which the local counts paid little heed to their nominal Frankish overlords. The population was largely Basque. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The valley first belonged to the county of Toulouse, to which was joined the County of Ribagorza. In the 11th century, the valley came into the hands of the County of Pallars, before being annexed by the Kingdom of Aragón in the 12th century. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although the valley had a relatively low population in the Middle Ages, large quantities of silver enriched the local dignitaries to encourage them to join the Catalan campaign to recover Barbastro and Zaragoza. Much of the wealth was spent on the construction of many churches from the 11th to the 14th centuries, in the new architectural style imported from Lombardy. The churches are characterized by elaborate stonework and elegant bell towers. Wall paintings from the churches are conserved at the National Museum of Art of Catalonia in Barcelona. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many of the churches have remained in use for religious worship since they were constructed and consecrated in the 11th and 12th centuries. Nine churches were included in the World Heritage Site: Sant Climent and Santa Maria in Taüll, Sant Feliu in Barruera, Sant Joan in Boí, Santa Eulàlia in Erill la Vall, Santa Maria de l'Assumpció de Cóll, Santa Maria de Cardet, la Nativitat de la Mare de Déu in Durro, and the hermitage of Sant Quirc near Durro.

St Mary’s, Iffley, Oxford dates to about 1160 and is one of the most important Romanesque churches in the country. It was built by the Clinton family whose castle was at Kenilworth, Warwickshire. This capital detail from the south doorway depicts fighting knights on horseback. The church was recently conserved, which included the application of a shelter-coat that startled some visitors, who were used to its dusty, dulled appearance. #iffley #oxfordshire #romanesque #crsbi #romanesquesculpture #sculpture #capital #stone #limestone #sheltercoat #masonry #12thcentury #knight #horseback #horse #lance #armour #doorway #heritage #builtheritage #buildingconservation #history #churchesofinstagram #churchcrawling

The first extraction of the original murals by Italian technicians took place between 1919-1923; the second detachment by Spanish technicians was between 1976-1978.
