Medieval Seal Matrices

Principal investigator: Isobel Gomer
Level: Masters degree

This thesis will examine medieval seal matrices, particularly personal non-heraldic ones, and will consider what these objects communicate about the identity of the user. The imagery and mottos will be examined to see if there is any link between the subject and the owner, the significance of the motifs, and the frequency of certain combinations. Additionally, the paper will attempt to discover whether certain designs appear more regularly in particular regions.
