· KEBLE · MARTYN · MAURICE ·

n31 2 lower. The seated figure to the left is John Keble () wearing clerical vestments of surplice and stole. His left hand holds a copy of his book of poems The Christian Year against his body while his right holds a quill pen. The inclusion at the bottom left of an angel with a psaltery is a reference to the fact that many of his poems (such as ‘Blest are the poor in heart’) became the lyrics for hymns. Seated to the right is Frederick Denison Maurice () wearing academic dress. His left hand and an open book rest upon his left knee.
