Endnotes

  • Remember that some medieval calenders got dates of saints' feast days wrong, or debated the date between different church sections.
  • There is often more than one saint that goes by the same name. For instance, there are at least four medieval St Bartholomews. They do not necessarily use the same feast day.
  • Local areas would celebrate only the saints' feast days relevant to them - they might celebrate the well known saints of their country, and also a few local saints, and saints relevant ot their landscape and specialities (eg farming saints, saints of sailors, vinters, etc) and also saints relevant to their personal circumstances (female saints for a convent, saints of chastity for a person who had taken a vow of chastity, etc). There was a big push in the 12th century to introduce Saint Thomas Beckett to Europe (from England) - gifts of clothing with embroideries of his martyrdom were sent to many European churches as a publicity campaign.
  • Books of saints' days existed in medieval times. One 12th century example online is the [Albans psalter], also with an [[1]] about the saints' days within.
