The verminous cadaver monument in medieval Scotland

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Scottish evidence for so-called verminous cadaver imagery is set out. Two examples are briefly discussed, both on incised slabs made for display in religious houses (a Valliscaulian monastery and a Hospitaller preceptory). The slabs in question are not discussed at length: the aim here is simply to publicise the hitherto overlooked Scottish extension of an aspect of tomb-iconography that has attracted much attention and continues to do so.
