This extract from a larger work on Christian symbolism in Britain and Ireland is part of the Rhind Lectures in Archaeology for 1885. It deals with the relation between the medieval bestiaries and the carved stone work of animals found in churches and other places from before the thirteenth century. Only the sixth lecture from a series of six Rhind lectures is included in this edition. The text is illustrated by numerous line drawings of stone carvings.
