Summary

Bas-de-page scene of the martyrdom of Agnes, beheaded by a man holding up a sword, with a decorated initial 'C'(redidi). Image taken from f. 239 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.
