I came back from Canterbury today. I saw the relics of Saint Thomas. It was a bone encased in glass with a lion's head on one end. The stained glass there was beautiful. I also saw some mosaics on the ground. Statues of religious figures and gargoyles lined the building.
In other news, the monks started working on my illuminated manuscript today. It's a copy of the bible just like my father used to own. It is going to be full of vibrant colors unlike the darker, flat paintings found at church. In common, they will all be about religion and telling stories of Jesus. After all, it is rare to see a painting or drawing that isn't. I'm excited to get this because it is a rare opportunity for someone below the nobility class to receive an illuminated manuscript.
I read more pages of Tiberius' journal. He talked about art showing depth and looking like real people. This strikes me as weird because it seems impossible to make a flat object have depth. He also talked about people drawing buildings and people in them. This is weird because every painting here is of religious figures.
