Publisher's description: The chapters collected here range through art, documentary text and poetry and divide fairly evenly between dress and textiles. John Block Friedman breaks new ground for this journal with his article on clothing for pets and other animals, while Grzegorz Pac examines sacred and royal female dress and evaluates attempts to link them together. Jonathan Cooper examines the clothing worn by scholars in Scotland's three pre-Reformation Universities and the effects of the Reformation upon it. Camilla Luise Dahl examines selected terminology of clothing in probates and what it can tell us about changing fashions in the period. Megan Carvell focuses on the treatment of textile associated with the Holy of Holies in Old English biblical poetry. Mark Chambers considers the difficulties of defining some of the terminology used for cloth measures. Finally, Thomas M. Izbicki's chapter examines documentary evidence for the choice of white linen for the altar and the responsibilities of a priest for keeping it clean and in good repair.
