Paisley Abbey Stained Glass Window

Misericordia et Pax

Merercordia Et pax

It commemorates Abbot John Hamilton, one of the three natural
sons of James Hamilton, first Earl of Arran. Appointed in 1625,
through the favour of his father, he exercised great influence over
his brother James, second Earl of Arran, Governor of Scotland
during the minority of Queen Mary. He was appointed Bishop of
Dunkeld in 1543, and promoted to the Archbishopric of St.
Andrews in 1549. A firm adherent of Queen Mary, he was con-
demned by the regent Lennox, and was hanged at Stirling on the
1st April, 1570.

After the execution, the body of the archbishop was quartered, but his mangled remains are said to have been carried by his friends to Paisley, and there interred. In the abbey church is a tablet which looks as if it had once marked his grave. Upon it are the archbishop’s armorial bearings, the letters his initials J. H., and the motto he adopted, Misericordia et Pax.

The Ancient Mathemagians

“The point I have been trying to make is that the Ancient Mathemagians did not limit their understanding of the sphere to only measuring it to 360 degrees. They recognised it as a living, vibrating energy that could be seen in the Chaladni patterns that appear on the head of a vibrating drum that has been covered in sand.” David Ritchie p. 143 We the Skythains – The Lie of the Land of Egypt

P144 DAR

“I don’t believe the similarity between the Celtic Cross or an icon-graphic ‘halo’, and the ‘seven’ drum patterns is any co-incidence.  Every religious symbol is a mathematical symbol….The notion that it is merely representative of a drum, I would agree is ludicrous, unless of course it is symbolic of something else that does the same thing…the Earth.” David Ritchie, We the Skythians: The Lie of the Land of Ægypt

Forgotten History

“There is another geodetic Temple, other than Solomon’s, in Scotland… it is the Greek one, the Temple of Athena, and she hides a bigger secret than Solomon… the birthplace of the real Messiah – the ‘Son of the Star’.. Simon Bar Cocheba, Kokab, the Hebrew revolutionary who defeated the Romans in 134AD… in SCOTLAND.” David Ritchie

Has it been forgotten or hidden in the past?interesting structures

Revealing revelations how did I get this task?

The biggest secret ever, how’s it possible it can’t be?

Judeo/Christian connotations, no-one really wants to see.

Yet as I turn the pages, the door opens up some more.

Reminding me that everything, isn’t always as it seems.

Barrhill he tells me is the home of a Messiah of a different kind.

The Star of Bethlehem was born in a very different time.

The Last Up-rising, Josephus reports in his works now on full view.

All I’m seeing confirms it, it DSC_0024must be bloody true.

With biblical proportion the lie’s been spread around the lands.

Making me question, just how many hidden hands.

The locations are still there now, for all to look and see.

If only they would questions, is it possible let’s see.

Paisley Abbey – St. Mirin’s Frieze

On the east wall there is a remarkable sculptured frieze, 1ft. 8in broad.  There is a gap in the stones towards the north side.  The stones probably formed part of an altar reredos in some other part of the Abbey before the fire of 1408.  The work would seem to be of a fifteenth century date.

It used to be thought that they were of much earlier date, and that the carving represented the seven sacraments of the Roman Church. ‘The reredos contains a range of sculptured images – those at the south side are three Priests standing and one sitting, and others in the attitudes of confessing, and others kneeling; next another Altar; next, a Priest standing administering Extreme Unction to a sick man; next are three Priests at Mass – Celebrant, Gospeller, and Epistler.  In the centre of this Reredos or Altar-piece, there is a small vacancy, and a little North of this is the Holy Babe, with His Blessed Virgin Mother, Joseph, and the rest of the Holy Family, a man reading a book, and another holding by the Horns of the Altar. Some opine that the Seven Sacraments or the Seven Corporal Works of Mercy are hereon depicted. ‘ Gordon’s Monasticon, p. 563

The obvious subject is, however, Incidents in the Legendary Life of St. Mirin. (Lees, P.211) These as given in the Aberdeen Breviary, can be readily identified in the ten sculptured panels.  Proceeding from left to right we see –

  1. Mirin’s mother bringing him when a child to St. Congal at Bangor.
  2. Conga vests Mirin in his monastic dress.
  3. Mirin takes up his work as Prior.
  4. Mirin, having gone on a mission to the Irish King, is driven away by a servant from the palace door.
  5. The King is punished by having to suffer the pains of labour instead of the Queen.
  6. The Queen in bed and a nurse holding the infant.
  7. The King begs Mirin’s forgiveness.
  8. The reconcilement of the King and Queen with Mirin.
  9. Mirin in his cell, illuminated with heavenly light, is seen by a brother monk through the key-hole of the door.
  10. Mirin restores a dead man to life.
