medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

Today (1. November) is, in Latin-rite churches and in others influenced by their festal calendars, the feast of All Saints (in churches using the Byzantine Rite their celebration falls rather on the first Sunday after Pentecost).  Herewith some period-pertinent images associated directly with this veneration in that they either accompany texts associated with it or else (a minority in this selection, though abundant in western art of the later Middle Ages) at least form major elements of scenes of adoration in heaven.  Also included (item n) is one well known image of the saints in their multitude arrayed about the Godhead but facing away from Him.
