Pilgrim badge: Jousting Knight
Time period:14th Century

A jousting tournament must have been the most splendid spectacle that anyone could expect to see. To celebrate the glamour and excitement this badge shows the armoured knight upon an elaborately costumed horse.
Badge making did not only serve a religious market. It occupied a position in all aspects of life as for example, political and military to show allegiance, celebrate amorous intent, and indicate sporting interests, often with a satirical flavour.
