A Tomb with a View: Medieval Anchorites and Anchoresses

In medieval England hundreds of men and women willingly underwent a Mass for the Dead before being locked away for life in either a tiny cell on the side of a church, or in openings in town walls and other cramped spaces. These were the anchorites and anchoresses of long ago. There were hermits and hermitesses, too, who settled on a solitary life in caves and other isolated places. Come and look into these “tombs with a view” via some rare written sources and images.
