A glorious exhibition covering over 3,000 years of the history, myths and legend of the Church of Bleeding Gums.


From Italy’s Ostia Antica to Medieval England, the gambling dens of 18th century London, and the Cambridge spies in the 1950s, St Michael of Coles and his team have researched DE ECCLESIA CRUENTIS GINGIVIS, aka the CHURCH OF BLEEDING GUMS. Gathering evidence where there is none, wading through a confusion of facts, gossip and rumour, they’ve pieced together and re-created the fragmented history of this elusive church and its seven chapels.
