It is only loosely based on the Bible and includes plenty of apocryphal episodes, for example Christ surfing on sunbeams as a child.

The costumes, tools, weapons and buildings in the pictures give us a near documentary-style representation of many occupations in the age of Chaucer, such as dyer, smith, carpenter and midwife. This distinctive manuscript has now been carefully photographed and reproduced on special paper designed to replicate the look and feel of the original vellum. The facsimile includes Michelles Browns full transcript and translation of the text, and a commentary based on her unrivalled knowledge of the period.
