Our Lady of Walsingham, Holy House Pilgrim Badge
The Holy House of Walsingham Pilgrim Badge. Late thirteenth, early fourteenth century. This badge show the Holy House that was built in 1061 as a replica of the Holy House in Nazareth. The design was revealed to the builder, a gentlewoman called Richeldis of Faverches, by the Virgin herself in a series of dreams. This small structure attracted such attention that Walsingham Priory was soon built around it. In the central chamber are the figures of the Virgin and Gabriel, standing either side of the Scroll and the Lily Pot. In the chamber below is the statue of the seated Madonna and Child.
