Mural Fragment

Fragment of a wall painting depicting a king dedicating a church to a saint. From the refectory of the Abbey of Charlieu, Burgundy, late 12th century. The scene probably refers to the donations of King Boson to the new monastery in 879, in which case the saint is one of the monastery's patrons, St. Stephen or St. Fortunatus.
