      I ment Middle Ages but there are so many Saints to
      choose from. Maybe the question should be which Saint
      was the most popular amoungst was most popular during
      the 13-14th century. On a side note in "Medieval finds
      from excavations in London. 7 : Pilgrim souvenirs and
      secular badges" by Brian Spencer there is a photo of a
      pair of small three-dimensional shoes made out of
      pewter. They look 15th-century to me but I can look
      again. Now the book suggest that they're a love-token
      but since they also show small purses that you could
      hang around your neck with a luck charm inside maybe
      these symbolised something else, like a Saint.
