St Michael's velvet-covered breastplate was on show in a Normandy church until 1607, when the bishop of Avranches forbade its display. St Michael is
the patron of the French Foreign Legion. I really have to wonder what it showed and what was so bad that it was taken away. I could not find any
information on this maybe you can help.
