The aim of this article is to provide a survey of the vicissitudes of medieval church furnishings in Western Europe. Most furnishings have been conserved in the Protestant countries of northern Europe. The richest are Lutheran churches, followed by Anglican ones. Even in Calvinist churches, here and there medieval pieces may be encountered. The wealth of such furnishings in Protestant churches contrasts with their relative scarcity in Roman Catholic ones, from which most medieval furniture has been replaced over the centuries. This is the contrast between the conservative Lutheran Bugenhagen and the Catholic renewer Borromaeus.
