Royal representations by the means of architecture and art as developed in England in the era of Richard II and Anne of Bohemia were in the last third of the 14th century the most remarkable phenomenon of its kind. It is possible to identify an echo of Prague art in English milieu – for example in the illumination of the Codex Liber Regalis (Westminster Abbey, London MS 38). Relations between England and Bohemia were also reflected in a lively reception of John Wycliffe, an English theologian and thinker. Similarities in English architecture and the work of Prague-based Peter Parler led to speculations about the possibility of Parler’s inspiration by English Gothic – and if so, whether this inspiration was mediated by drawings or whether Parler saw some of the English Gothic buildings himself before coming to Prague. The distance between Prague and London is not short, yet it is possible to identify numerous connections between architecture and other arts in the Kingdom of Bohemia and England throughout the 13th and especially 14th century.
