This website illustrates and describes more than 850 scenes carved in medieval choir stalls from Europe. A slide show mode and a lexicon help to discover the hidden world of the misericords. With the simple search you can enter a word, a name or a musical instrument. The advanced search allows you to cross criterias. Some photographs are still being uploaded, and the descriptions are also being translated every day.
