The Bloody History of Dundrennan Abbey, Carved in Stone
Dundrennan Abbey in southern Scotland was founded in the 12th century. None of its records survive and little is known about its history.
It's best known sculpture is this depiction of an abbot.
During recent restoration efforts, attention was drawn to this carving. Does that dagger on the abbot's chest show that he was stabbed to death?
At the abbot's feet is this second figure, expiring from a stab wound in the belly. The scholars who made this announcement want it to be a story of an assassination, with the abbot depicted triumphant in the afterlife over the man who ended his time on earth.
Maybe. I mean, we know nothing about this place's history, so why not go with the most fun interpretation?
