The Jacobite Rebellions: Symbolism & Allegiance
The Jacobite Rebellions had a profound impact on eighteenth century society and across the country as a whole. Held to mark the 250th anniversary of Fairfax House, the exhibition, In the Name of the Rose, examined the significance of this armed conflict on the lives of the Fairfaxes and the influence that the rebellions may have had on this catholic family’s psyche. This accompanying exhibition publication explores the secretive, subversive and dangerous world of the Jacobite, and the use of symbolism to carry messages of loyalty. It also raises important questions about the Fairfax family, their won sympathies, and how these might be conveyed through the very fabric of this townhouse itself.
