Example text

It is apparent that Charles was solicited for the Touch at any time, whether returning from Newport or even on entering his coach. Likewise the ceremony surrounding the pre-war event is completely absent, gone are the chaplains intoning the prayers, gone are the obedient lines of hopeful sufferers; instead, Charles is accosted and grabbed by the coat by a woman who begs him for the Touch. Likewise, although the receipt of an Angel had traditionally been an indispensable part of the healing ritual, and despite the ambiguity over whether the gold was merely a sign of the king’s charity or an indispensable part of the healing process, the incidents here recounted confirm that when stripped to its essentials the royal miracle depended upon nothing but the physical presence of the king.

The problem was that Charles was by this time a prisoner on the Isle of Wight and so beyond Cole’s reach. However, Cole learnt that the king was to be brought through Winchester en route to London to stand trial, and so he decided to wait upon the king as he passed through the town. Charles, however, was not on a royal progress, he was a prisoner under escort, and when he arrived in Winchester Cole realised that the crowd of soldiers and officials around him made it impossible to come near enough to received the Touch.

1643, p. 11. 15 Symmons commented in Messages of peace that it was possible to meet the real Charles through his writings and his replies to the Parliamentary negotiators, and Symmons here refers to the word of Charles as his ‘gospel’. This is significant not only in respect of the later reception of the Eikon Basilike but because Charles worked assiduously throughout the 1640s to present an acceptable image of himself to his people. It has been suggested that his stammer made Charles favour other forms of communication over the spoken word.
