The tomb of Archbishop George Abbot

MAUREEN WRIGHT

The tomb of George Abbot, Archbishop of Canterbury from 1611 until 1633, contains substantial elements of political, religious, social and architectural history. Abbot was a significant national and local individual in a period of uncertainty and conflict. His brother Maurice (or Morris) who 'eternally pays the funeral obsequies', provides a clear example of Stuart trading enterprise and the networks supporting public display. Stylistically, the tomb made by John and Matthias Christmas, London carvers and sculptors, demonstrates traditional and newer classical expression of complex questions about what post-Reformation memorials should portray. Later visitors to the monument have written trenchant assessments of Abbot and given their own interpretations of his tomb.
