Pretty medieval manuscript of the day shows the martyrdom of Thomas Becket. Produced in Bruges in the early sixteenth century, at one point the book belonged to Anne Boleyn. I love the colours, the scribal hand, and the little birds in the border. It’s quite beautiful. The tranquil scenes in the margin are quite at odds with the brutal theme of the main image.
