image for Talk item typeJonathan Foyle - The Origins of the Tudor Rose at Theatr Brycheiniog

Talk, Tue 12 Feb 2019, £8




This talk distils several years of original research on a much-misunderstood aspect of royal and national symbolism: the 'Tudor rose'. Close inspection of court arts reveals the monarchs we call ‘Tudor’ from 1485-1603 never used it to represent their union of the houses of York and Lancaster. So where did it come from? Late medieval art was rich in floral imagery, and a fuller understanding of how roses were used in sculpture, manuscripts and engravings to convey the qualities of Christ and the Virgin Mary completely revises the significance of the symbol in royal usage, revealing its long-hidden origins - and from where our understanding originates.
