description

Summary

Four-part miniature with scenes from the Passion of Christ, with an historiated initial 'D'(eficit) of the scourging of Christ, and a bas-de-page scene of James the Less being thrown down from the roof of the Temple. Image taken from f. 249 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.
