Ralph developed a system of pictorial signs or motifs such as initials, crowns, Bishop’s croziers and swords, placed in the margins of his text as a form of index. Here they are copied in red and blue, and are accompanied by a key explaining that they relate to important subjects such as the English Church, monarchy and the French and English nobility. Diceto explained in a note that their purpose was to help stimulate the memory.
