The elaborate embroidered pomegranate on this corporal made between 1590 and 1600 is a symbol of eternal life. In the absence of a priest to celebrate the Eucharist, the corporal that had touched the consecrated host was regarded as a relic.



This Agnus Dei of 1578 was carried by St. Edmund Campion.



An Agnus Dei is a disc of wax impressed with the figure of a lamb and blessed at stated seasons by the Pope. The lamb usually bears a cross or flag, while figures of saints or the name and arms of the Pope are also commonly impressed on the reverse. They are regarded as sacramentals like holy water. Agnes Dei were worn as protection from evil. In the prayers of blessing, special mention is made of the perils from storm and pestilence, from fire and flood, and also from the dangers of childbirth.

This Agnus Dei was wrapped in a list of indulgences and hidden in rafters of Lynford Grange, Berkshire when Campion was arrested July 17, 1581.
