Dedicated to the diffusion of the devotional portrait diptych in the Low Countries, this article demonstrates that this genre of paintings was not as popular as often stated, but was instead a particular type of painting which was circulated in very specific ways and contexts. The dukes of Burgundy - especially Philip the Good - made devotional portrait diptychs popular in the first half of the 15th century, before being imitated by several noble men, who commissioned such works of art for Rogier van der Weyden between 1450 and 1460. While we do not know any diptych from the years 1460-1480, the two next decades mark the peak of production of such diptychs, most of them being produced by or for the citizens of Bruges; the probable presence of the "Diptych of Jean Gros" in this town surely explains this revival. During the first decades of the 16th century, Margaret of Austria promoted this genre once more, and several members of her circle followed her example by commissioning such diptychs. The scheme of diffusion of devotional portrait diptychs in the Low Countries attests to their capacity to express the social ambition and prestige of the person portrayed, as well as their devotional function.

In mid-May 1395, Philippe de Mézières writes a Letter to king Richard II of England, an urgent call, which does not belong to the epistolary but to the allegorical and the mirror for princes genre. This letter, revealing a clear similarity of thought between the author and the king of France, Charles VI, to whose education the former contributed, is preserved as a unique manuscript, the Royal 20 B VI, in the British Library. This manuscript turns out to be the one offered to the English monarch and, being addressed to the latter, ended up in the hands of a prince, who was particularly able to appreciate its meaning and all its wit. Although Mézières advocates a reconciliation between the kings of France and England, to be sealed with a marriage between Isabelle de Valois, the former’s oldest daughter and the latter, which was the safest way to achieve his ultimate aim of a reconciliation within the Church and the re-conquest of the Holy Land, what he truly hoped for was the founding of the Order of the Passion of Jesus Christ.
