As knowledge about fire evolved, fire became portable. Used to light the interior of caves and dark natural passageways in dense woods, portable fire was both dangerous and unpredictable.

Eventually fire was contained in glass. Handheld candle sconces and lanterns were used to light the way for everyone from monks in the inner corridors of monasteries to miners’ deep underground. Candle wall sconces and lanterns adorned the corridors of medieval castles and exterior walls.
