      Welcome back to #ThyCaptionBe, a celebration of modern interpretations of medieval aesthetics. Every Tuesday, this will go down on Tumblr and Twitter:

      1. We’ll post a detail.
      2. You guess what in the world is going on and write a caption (questionable accuracy welcome).
      3. Then we’ll share the full illumination and myth-bust if we must.

      Caption away! Can’t wait to see what #ThyCaptionBe.
