Brian Spencer, former Keeper of the Museum of London, was a major scholar of medieval popular culture. He almost single-handedly established the study of pilgrim souvenirs and secular badges. He defined what these objects were and ascertained their function, manufacture, style, and iconography with a careful use of primary documents and intricate stylistic analysis. He identified every major souvenir and badge discovered in Great Britain during the last few decades. He also made prominent contributions to the field of seal matrices, gaming pieces, and horse paraphernalia. What bound all of these interests together was his understanding that the study of these artefacts could shed light on the beliefs and practices of a large number of people. This is reflected in the frequency with which his work is cited. This volume is a collection of essays written by those who worked with Brian directly and those with whom he corresponded.

This handsome two-part set is the first fully illustrated study of one of the most substantial collections of medieval stained glass in England. The glass from the east end of Wells Cathedral (rebuilt by a thriving clerical community between 1320 and 1340) includes the five brilliantlycoloured windows of the choir clerestory, with its seven-light Jesse east window, and glass from the famous polygonal Lady Chapel. There are also remains from the Chapter House, Library, Vicars' Close and the houses of the cathedral Chapter members.Besides describing and illustrating each panel, the volume has introductions to each part of the building or cathedral complex. These sections reconstruct what is known of the original glazing and its history, set it within the history of the buildings, their uses and issues of patronage, and revealmany new discoveries. An introduction places the findings within the wider context of recent international stained glass studies and late medieval art history.
