PEDANTS’ REVOLT

You’ve heard of the Peasants’ Revolt.  I give you the Pedants’ Revolt …

(Miniature) The Peasants’ Revolt. Two groups of rebels meet outside London. They carry banners of England and St. George. Their leaders John Ball, on horseback, and Wat Tyler, standing left, are labelled ‘Jehan Balle’ and ‘Waultre le Tieulier’ respectively. Image taken from Chroniques de France et d`Angleterre, Book II. Originally published/produced in S. Netherlands, circa 1460-1480.
