Another gruesome manuscript match up based on last night’s Game of Thrones from our Medieval manuscripts curator:
"Last week it was cannibalism, this week it’s death by fire. We saw supposed heretics burned at the stake to satisfy the fire god, the Lord of Light (or at least his uber-creepy, crimson-clad priestess).
In this illumination, even knights aren’t untouchable to the torch. The Pope crushed the chivalric order and after a series of confessions, the grand master of the Knights Templar was burned as a heretic.”
Heated tempers all around.
