St Barbara...

The most beautiful image of St Barbara in East Anglia - on the rood screen at Barton Turf. Many thanks to the Canon Precentor of Norwich Cathedral for bringing this to my attention.

Unfortunately the world over which she once presided is now dead, and gone.

St Barbara, pray for us.

  1. Of course—according to the True Kalendar, as used in these Isles until as recently as 1752—, St Barbara’s Day is another two days off.

    My mother’s name is Barbara, by the way.
