|Description||Arma Christi illustration (heraldic and quasi-heraldic attributes of the passion of Christ), along with depictions of certain other irrelevant heraldic shields, in the probable 15th-century manuscript Harley 6163 from the Harleian collection of the British Library.
Reproduced from Two Tudor Books of Arms: Harleian Mss. Nos. 2169 & 6163, with Nine Hundred Illustrations. / A Tudor Book of Arms: Being Harleian Manuscript No. 6163 Blasoned by Joseph Foster, Hon M.A. Oxon, where it is given the following description:
"The armys of owre lord Jesew Cryst after the forme of the passyon."
Indexed as tropheys of Christ's passion
On a mount, a standing figure three-quarters, to the left, clad in the seamless " co(te) of sy(lvyr) saddely wt. gold " girt about the waist. "This is made for God's cote."
In the right hand a spear*-headed flag-staff, with banner of blue, thereon the Agnus Dei contourné with a cruciferous nimbus of gold. The sinister foot of the lamb and the staff, which terminates in a cross crosslet, are set in a golden chalice, the pennon charged with a (red) cross.
The left hand, holding a blue shield charged with the silver " Vernycle," i.e., a white cloth or handkerchief of Veronica, bearing the head of Christ, transfixed with three triple spikes, resembling a cross flory.
On a golden helmet, with rosset mantling and wreath, a golden crucifix pierced by three nails, at the top a scroll inscribed I.N.R.I., all between on the dexter a birch and on the sinister the scourge.
It will be seen that the herald painter has audaciously balanced his page by the addition of three ordinary armorial shields:
2. Per pale sable and gules a leg erect couped argent.
3. ADAM GOODALE, sergaunt of Armys, Per fess gules and argent a pale counter- coloured, three ostryches "rowsyng " (i.e., rousant) 2 and 1 (of the second ?).
