Trushare Files  No. 98



July 2003




Our cover illustration shows a detail from a fifteenth-century doom painting in the church of St Peter, Wenhaston, Suffolk. The scene depicts St Peter receiving the high and mighty, stripped naked, at the gates of heaven. The frescoes were painted over due to prudish attitudes at the Reformation and uncovered again in the nineteenth century. They have been restored and relocated so that they can be viewed from ground level
