St. Etheldreda Pilgrim Badge
St Etheldreda Pilgrim Badge
St.Etheldreda (or Audrey), was Abbess of the convent she had founded at Ely in the 7th century on the site now occupied by Ely Cathedral. Pilgrimage to her shrine was popular throughout the 14th and 15th centuries and fairs were held on her feast days. At these fairs cheap trinkets, known as ‘tawdry wares’ were sold - the word tawdry being a contraction of St Audrey. This pilgrim badge shows St.Etheldreda holding a book and Abbess’s crosier from which hang a pair of fetters. The latter alluding to a popular miracle where St.Etheldreda delivered a man from a London jail.
Original found in London 14th - 15th century.
