The Star Chamber was an English court of law which sat at the Royal Palace of Westminster, from the late 15th century to the mid-17th century.
The Star Chamber was established to ensure the fair enforcement of laws against socially and politically prominent people so powerful that ordinary courts would likely hesitate to convict them of their crimes.
Here, Cecil Doughty brings us a depiction of the workings inside the secret Star Chamber, beautifully embellished wooden panels and stained glass adorn the chamber, whilst the bloodthirsty judges try a defendant.
