back wall of the early c14 shrine of little st.hugh, a young boy whose murder in 1255 was blamed on lincoln's jewish community, with predictably bloody results. the shrine sat against part of the screen walls around the choir that were probably paid for with money that the church made from exploiting this tragedy.
