Paper by Laura May Jones

Given online during the CIfA Conference on July 26, 2021

Excerpt: I’m really happy to bring you this talk about the Biblical locusts from the Book of Revelations and their apocalyptic and iconographical connections to the medieval warhorse. I aim to explore apocalyptic iconography of the 11th to the 14th century and its connection to equestrian material culture so objects and artifacts of the medieval-era equestrian armor and equipment will be discussed.
