Abstract :
Henry III expressed the importance which he gave to almsgiving through the decoration of his great halls. The parable of Dives and Lazarus, with its warning to the avaricious rich, was positioned opposite the dais in the king's own line of view, while images of S. Edward the Confessor offering his ring as alms identified English kingship with exemplary generosity. Henry III filled the royal halls with thousands of poor as part of the celebration of the liturgical year. The feeding of the poor was also an integral part of the commemoration of the royal dead. ;
