  • Title: A New Discovery in the Wilton Diptych [The author announces a small detail found during intense examination prior to cleaning. At the top of the banner there is a tiny map showing an island with a white castle. The author argues that it is intended to represent the island of Britain that is given to Mary as the "dos Mariae." King Richard is waiting to receive back the banner in order to rule Britain with the blessing of the Virgin. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
