description

Summary

Historiated initial 'E'(xultavit) of Hannah bringing Samuel to Eli, with a bas-de-page scene of Catherine standing before her broken wheel, with two angels with swords above and two fallen men assisted by two others below. Image taken from f. 283 of Psalter ('The Queen Mary Psalter'). Written in Latin, with French image captions.

In medieval illuminated manuscripts, bas-de-page scenes are unframed, sometimes whimsical images that appear below the written text and may or may not refer to it.
