The year: 1468
The place: The Isle of Man
A sparsely-outfitted monk's cell contains little in the way of furniture or possessions. Most notable are the cross in front of the slit-fort window and the worn fresco on the wall next to the entryway. A lumpy-looking straw bed and a chest are the only other concessions to basic human habitation. Even the prie-dieu is bare wood, and there are no armrests provided.
