Illustration prefacing the table of contents. In the centre, a monumental figure of an ecclesiastic, dressed in green amice, blue chasuble and red stole, holds a spear in his right hand and a book in his left, and stands on a lion that bites the spear. He is flanked by two smaller figures; a soldier with a round shield and a scroll, and a monk offering a book; there are two yellow curtains drawn aside in the background. The figures are surrounded by a 'Winchester' type border of acanthus decoration with corner bosses. Old English Herbal. Christ Church, Canterbury; early 11th century. Source: C
