About Eanswythe - Seeing Eanswythe

Introduction to the gallery

Images of saints are not just representational but contain symbols that often convey a rich meaning to onlookers. Over the coming months we will be thinking more about the iconography and imaginative representation of Eanswythe, both historically and in modern times. You might also want to look at our ‘Genius’ page (coming soon) to explore some of the ways that Eanswythe is ‘seen’ by artists, photographers, and others in the present day.
