The Annunciation, Hexham Abbey
The Annunciation, Hexham Abbey
On each side of the central passage through NY9364 : Prior Smythson's Screen, Hexham Abbey are doors which originally led via spiral stairs to the pulpitum (loft) for access during High Mass. Above each door is a painting: the Annunciation is over the north door. It shows the archangel Gabriel bringing his message (conveyed in a now illegible scroll) to the Virgin, as reported in the first chapter of Luke; a symbolic potted red lily grows between them. {Source: Hexham Abbey Guide p22; and Hexham Abbey Leaflet No.5.}
