Saint Gregory I the Great or Pope Saint Gregory I (c. 540 604) was pope from September 3, 590 until his death. This illustrates the circumstances of his famous quote 'Non Angli, sed Angeli' ('They are not Angles, but Angels') when he first encountered blue-eyed, blond-haired English boys at a slave market. The incident is said by Bede to have led to his dispatching of St. Augustine of Canterbury to England to convert the English. A fantastic example of colour printing.
