What's up with the snails that are always present in those manuscripts? Knights fighting big snails and stuff?
@David Grimes No one knows for sure :) There are many theories, but the one I buy the most is that the snail is a symbol for slothfulness and indifference, which the Christian knight must do battle with ... but I'm hoping it meant something much funnier than that, as medieval folk had great senses of humor!
