Jill Gage, Reference Librarian at the Newberry Library, shares a striking example of a medieval book of hours--a collection of prayers to be recited throughout the day. During Henry the VIII's reign, the family that owned this book struck out and altered parts of it after a royal decree banned references to the saint, Thomas Becket. On the 500th anniversay of Henry's coronation, this book poses interesting questions about royal authority and its reach into daily life.
