Group of Cistercian Monks.jpg Johanna de WarnThumbnailsFuneral Service of a HermitJohanna de WarnThumbnailsFuneral Service of a Hermit

The cut represents a group of Cistercian monks, from a manuscript in the British Museum. It shows some of them sitting with hands crossed and concealed in their sleeves—an attitude which was considered modest and respectful in the presence of superiors; some with the cowl over the head. It will be observed that some are and some are not bearded.
