woman asleep [or ill] in bed, the empress' crown beside her pillow. a servant holds up a urine flask. quite how this fits the story is unclear. late c15 boss from the bauchon chapel vault, depicting a christian empress wrongly accused. ironically, in the consistory courts held here most of those accused were innocent , tried in god's name as shrews and scolds, witches, bogomils, lollards and heretics; the jews escaped these late mediaeval courts in england only because they had already been either slaughtered or ethnically cleansed already. oh, the good old days of merry england!
