The Holkham Bible (London, British Library Additional Manuscript 47682) is an illustrated collection of biblical and apocryphal stories in Norman French. It was produced in England during the decades before 1350 for use by an unidentified Dominican friar. The illustrations depict the stories in contemporary English settings, making it a visual source on medieval English society. (continued on English Wikipedia)
