She lived in a conical hut built of branches, at the base of an ancient tree, and it was there that great numbers of people visited her.

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.

D.O. Hill Lithogr. Printed by J. Robertson Edinbr.
[Perth: T. Hill, c.1821.]
Lithograph, sheet 300 x 485mm. 11¾ x 19". Tatty extremities.
A view of Perth and the River Tay, Scotland; figures on shore and ships on the river in foreground, also Perth Bridge (also known as Smeaton's Bridge and, locally, the Old Bridge) in distance far right. From 'Sketches in Perthshire' by David Octavius Hill, 30 lithographs published in Perth in six parts. David Octavius Hill (1802-1870) was a Scottish painter and arts activist. He collaborated with the engineer and photographer Robert Adamson to pioneer many aspects of photography in Scotland. He studied and learnt lithography at the School of Design and went on to produce his album of views "Sketches of Scenery in Perthshire". He was dissatisfied with the 'Institution' and established a separate Scottish Academy in 1829, along with Henry Cockburn. Over time, Hill took a turn towards photography and his collaboration with Adamson grew whereby Adamson's studio, "Rock House", on Calton Hill in Edinburgh became the centre of their photographic experiments. They photographed local scenes and persons and were prominent in developing "action" photographs. Both Adamson and Hill died due to ill health at early ages.
