The longer I spend in Medieval Studies, the more I realise that all the really cool ideas for fun things to do in church were thought of half a millennium ago.

News for Medievalists reports on the singing statues of Wells Cathedral.

Speaking of Wells, the Bocera told me the other day that the Bishop of Bath and Wells is the only pontiff in England with a dual seat. There was a complicated reason for this, but I’ve forgotten it.
