Things I've picked up along the way...

Pretty medieval manuscript of the day is another image of St Francis from the book we looked at yesterday. This time, we see Francis in death, with angels carrying his soul up to heaven where it is received by Christ, who we see peeking in through the window.
Again, the borders are quite stunning. I love the peacock at the bottom.
