The Lady of the Manor, ‘Rychold’, named as foundress in the Pynson Ballad, is a legendary figure without any substance other than this single attribution. By rigorous re-examination of the primary sources, Bill Flint is able to affirm the Saxon foundation of the Shrine and its royal heritage, identifying the foundress visionary as none other than Edith the Fair,.
Flint’s exhaustive analysis of the iconography of Our Lady of Walsingham together with his historical research into the figure of ‘Rychold’ reveals why her identity remained obscure for so long. His insights permit a fresh examination of the message of Our Lady of Walsingham, which has significant implications for the understanding of Anglo-Saxon Christianity and the Catholic Church in England.
