Heraldic Discovery in Exeter Cathedral

Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 9, (1877), pp. 301-305.


Robert Dymond

Prepared by Michael Steer

The discovery was made in February 1877 during restoration of the Cathedral nave. A number of circular mural oil paintings were revealed in line under the five lower windows of the south nave aisle. Many of the circular paintings were of heraldic arms in the usual shield form. The paintings are believed to have been executed in the closing years of the 16th century and the beginning of the Civil War. A majority of the arms are believed to be those of civic office bearers who are buried in the Cathedral.
