  1. Toros Roslin

    Toros Roslin


    Toros Roslin (Armenian: , Armenian pronunciation: ); circa 1210–1270) was the most prominent Armenian manuscript illuminator in the High Middle Ages. Roslin introduced a wider range of narrative in his iconography based on his knowledge of western European art while continuing the conventions established by his predecessors. Roslin enriched Armenian manuscript painting by introducing new artistic themes such as the Incredulity of Thomas and Passage of the Red Sea. In addition he revived the genre of royal portraits, the first Cilician royal portraits having been found in his manuscripts. His style is characterized by a delicacy of color, classical treatment of figures and their garments, an elegance of line, and an innovative iconography.

  4. Dominguito del Val

    Dominguito del Val


    Saint Dominguito del Val (died c. 1250) was a choirboy and the alleged victim of a ritual murder by Jews in Zaragoza (also known as Saragossa). Dominguito's story is related to the blood libel against Jews that grew in prominence in the 12th and 13th centuries of the Middle Ages, and contributed to antisemitic incidents. Saint Dominguito is no longer included on the official Roman Catholic liturgical calendar; however, there is still a chapel dedicated to him in the cathedral of Zaragoza. There exists little historical evidence of Dominguito aside from the stories and legends built around him; it is difficult to ascertain how much, if any, his story is true.

    Maol Íosa III, Earl of Strathearn


    Maol Íosa III of Strathearn, who ruled Strathearn 1271 to 1317, is the sixth known Mormaer of Strathearn; but this is a source problem and in no way means that he was the sixth in reality.

  25. Nicholas de Moffat

    Nicholas de Moffat


    Nicholas de Moffat (died 1270) was a 13th century cleric who was twice bishop-elect of Glasgow. He had been archdeacon of Teviotdale, and was elected (actually, he was postulated) to the bishopric of Glasgow on the first occasion in early 1259. He travelled to the Holy See to become consecrated; but he did not pay the money requested of him, and his travel companions turned against him, the bishop of Dunblane perhaps aspiring to the bishopric himself. Nicholas therefore returned to Scotland unconsecrated. John de Cheyam, a papal chaplain, was appointed in his place, probably in June 1259. Bishop John seems to have been resented by his clergy, and in 1267 John resigned the see. The following year, Nicholas was elected for the second time. This time however he died before receiving consecration, sometime in the year 1270. His funeral was held in Tinigham, or Tyninghame, in East Lothian.
