- St. Barbara
- This leaf was originally part of a book of hours. The prayer on the reverse (true verso) begins the Suffrage to St. Barbara, a virgin martyr who was kept shut in a tower by her pagan father. The three windows of the tower held by the figure in the miniature refer to the saints insistence on three windows as a way to symbolize the Trinity. This leaf is from the same manuscript as E M 11:17.
