This essay seeks to consider the relationship between the monumental brass of John Trillek1 and his episcopal seal of dignity. More broadly, using Trillek (and, to a lesser extent, the memorial and seal of another bishop of Hereford, Thomas Cantilupe) as a case-study, the following discussion will demonstrate that a consideration of sigillographic material can add substantially to our understanding and contextualization of medieval brasses, particularly in relation to their manufacture and purpose.
