Private devotion at Oxburgh Hall

On 17 December 2020, and as part of its project entitled A Material World – Portable Devotion, the Warburg Institute aired a wonderful lecture by Anna Forrest, presenting the incredible finds made by the National Trust at Oxburgh Hall, the family home of the Bedingfelds. Anna Forrest shows fragments of manuscript books and music, testifying to the lived devotion of this family, whose extended kin remained staunch recusants and plentiful providers of nuns over the years (as can be seen on the Who Were the Nuns? database).  You can view the video here.

If you do not have time, this article sums up some of the crucial facts, with very nice photography to illustrate some of the finds.
