Anachronisms 

Jean's hair is cut with a shiny pair of scissors which appear to be from the 20th century. Pivoted scissors (the kind with finger holes in use today) were not commonly available until the 18th century. Spring-based scissors which you squeeze from the ends of the scissors (kind of like tongs) were the ones used in the middle ages and were usually made out of iron, not steel.

The soldiers wear helmets with modern chin strap fasteners (likely WW1 British infantry helmets). Those helmets could be a deliberate anachronism though.

One of the priests is wearing a pair of black plastic spectacles. Only for a couple of seconds, but it's very apparent.

Revealing mistakes 

Near the end of the film when two rocks are thrown through what is supposed to be a leaded glass window it is clear from the way it breaks that it is just a regular pane of glass with lines drawn on it to simulate leaded glass.
