Life in Medieval England as Portrayed on Church Misericords and Bench Ends
M. G. Challis
Oxfordshire: Teamband Ltd., 1998

"Written to interest those who would like to place the carvings in their contemporary context rather than to provide an exhaustive catalogue". Largely focusing on examples in East Anglia and the West Country, Challis explores the various genres of misericord subjects represented, including depictions of events from the Bible, early disciples, beasts and monsters, scenes from everyday life and merry-making. Not a comprehensive study but one which reflects the time spent by the author visiting and recording these carvings.

67 p., many black & white illustrations.
