Norwich Saint Cuthbert Church


Norwich Saint Cuthbert Church, was a "paschal lamb" or Agnus Dei as it is more usually called. This was a blessed wax tablet with representation of the lamb of God. The tablet, which was made from the wax of the paschal candle, was blessed by the Pope and was regarded as a sacramental. At Sall was a scala de ecclesia, or ladder from the church, doubtless a wooden ladder leading to the rood-loft. This represents an intermediate stage: a rood-loft had been added to the chancel screen but no stairs for reaching it were provided in the older structure, therefore a wooden ladder was necessary to gain the loft.
