Presentation :

Made from wool, woven using the low-warp technique and completely reversible, the tapestry measures on average 103m in length and 4.5m in height (width). It is an interpretation of the 1st Century AD religious manuscript of the visions of St. John (the final text of the New Testament). It is a poignant commentary on the historical, social and political context of 14th Century France, at the time of the Hundred Years War and of epidemics and hunger across Europe.

Subject to extensive damage during late 18th and early 19th centuries, when it was disfigured, abandoned and dispersed, the tapestry was reassembled and restored by Canon Joubert in the mid-19th Century.
