medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

It's a ring frame purse with two sewn on pouchlets. A common purse during the later part of the 15th and early 16th c. The pouchlets are for keeping money in; handy for a ferryman.

James and Christopher associated: see
http://www.kornbluthphoto.com/SaintChristopher.html
--a 14th c. ivory of the two saints flanking the Virgin and Child, and a
c.1490 polychromed wood figure of Christopher with what look like shells on his pouch. (They could also be money bags, but why would those be depicted there?)

James with pilgrims, 13th-c. glass cameo:
