7565Re: [medieval-leather] Re: Saint's Badge?
- Mar 6, 2003I 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.
