Pilgrim's Badge representing Saint Adrian, 1400's, the Netherlands, the Cloisters Collection, Manhattan.
1480-1500 (Late Medieval). Flemish. Lead badges such as this one were purchased by pilgrims as mementos of holy sites they had visited. Originally there were loops at top and bottom for the pilgrim to sew the badges onto a hat or cloak. This example represents Saint Adrian. Saint Adrian holds in his left hand a sword and a banner, inscribed with his name: S. ADRIANUS. In his right hand, he holds an upended hammer on an anvil.
Pilgrim Badge, probably from the shrine of St Jos at Saint-Josse-sur-Mer, France. Born the son of a king of Brittany in the 7th century, Jos gave up his wealth and position to go on a pilgrimage to Rome. He then became a hermit in a monastery near Étaples, which was later named after him as Saint-Josse-sur-Mer. His hermitage became a popular stopping point for English pilgrims after arriving in France on the way to more distant shrines; late 14th century
