Abstract :
Addresses the suggestion made in 1892 that the narrative capitals of the east crossing piers at Southwell Minster are based on manuscript prototypes, and re-examines the largely Eucharistic iconography. Suggests a date after 1109. The significance of these capitals in art-historical terms is that they appear to link the Anglo-Saxon and Norman narrative traditions and styles; they are early examples of narrative sculpture in post-Conquest Britain; and their symbolism is relevant to their setting. Looks briefly at the style, iconography and technique of the tympana at Southwell (probably intended as a gabled lintel), and Hoveringham, and suggests that the same man carved both, ca.1110-1120. Iconography of both includes S. Michael and the dragon which share characteristics of Urnes style. ;
