Tomb of Ferry de Beauvoir Bishop 1457-1473, d.1479

Bishop Ferry de Beauvoir had sided with the Burgundians and was forced to flee Amiens when King Louis XI regained control of the city.  He was first buried in exile in the church of S-Firmin de Montreuil, but his body was brought back to Amiens by his nephew, Adrien de Hénencourt c.1490 in order to rehabilitate his disgraced uncle.  The tomb image of the bishop, in full episcpal gear, was intended to be seen in relation to the image of Saint Firmin arriving in Amiens directly above.
