Saints were the superheroes and celebrities of medieval European culture. As examples of great holiness and virtue they were thought to possess miraculous powers - although some of the most popular saints never existed at all. Men and women, rich and poor, the educated and the illiterate, all sought help from the saints and participated in devotion to them. Learn more about their stories with V&A guide Mireille Ellington.
