BT, the death of Harold Hero and villain? - Not so clear, good traits in both Harold and William - You want Harold to be the villain because he dies, makes an oath to William that he breaks - Why is William not in this part of the tapestry? - Conceivably he did not kill Harold - William has other duties; don’t involve King Edgar - Enthroned between two religious figures (bishops); above a monk figure - King as head of the church with religious obligation Fables - Commentary on action in the margins Crow and the Fox fable - Moral: pride is bad Triumphal Columns - Tombs are beneath - Ascends to the stars because of great deeds - Show scenes and images much like the BT (correspondence between the two; motifs may have been inspired by the BT) Hildesheim, Triumphal Column - Made by the Bishop of Hildesheim - Made around 1120 - Spiral story-telling; Christianized 3 sections - 3 of maybe 15 sections, made from parchment (animal skin); sewn together and rolled up like a scroll/book - Prayers to god, assembled soldiers, battle scene
