Knight on Sherborn. The Knight’s Vow, a circa 1500 tapestry, adorns SMG’s Sherborn Street entrance. The tapestry was given to Special Collections in 1959 by the William Randolph Hearst Foundation. It tells a classic story of chivalry and romance in five panels: a knight receives his title and armor; the knight meets a young woman of means; a second woman appears in the large central panel depicting the wedding of the knight; and in the right panels the knight atones for his indiscretions.
