Monumental Brass Society


An-up-to-date topographical index to the complete runs of the Soceity's Transactions, Bulletin and Portfolio has been prepared by William Lack. This includes all but the most trivial of references in these publications to churches, both in the UK and abroad, which contain, or have contained brasses, incised slabs or allied monuments. Illustrations are also indexed. It encompasses all publications up to 2016.

In addition, to mark the issue of Bulletin 100, William Lack has compiled a complete index to Bulletins 1-100. This index comprises three sections:

1. A topographic list of references and illustrations, with all but the most trivial
    references to churches which contain, or have contained, brasses, incised slabs
    and allied monuments. Original references to the name of the person
    commemorated have been converted into references to the church concerned.

2. A general index which is not intended to be comprehensive but to list major
    papers, lecture reports, conference reports, etc.

3. An alphabetic index of books and important papers reviewed or described in
    the Notes on Books and Articles.

(Please note: the indices are in a file in .pdf format which requires Adobe Acrobat to read it. Click here to load the reader from the Adobe site - also available on many free discs with PC magazines)

Page 2 of the downloaded document gives a contents list with the page references for both individual UK counties and individual foreign countries. Alternatively use the Acrobat find facility to search the document for a place name e.g. Algarkirk.

For articles of a general nature from these publications, see the Bibliography web page, which covers all publications on brasses and incised slabs. The foreign section of this bibliography also includes major articles from MBS publications on individual brasses and incised slabs and collections in specific churches. Similar articles on UK brasses and incised slabs will be added to the bibliography in future updates.
