- The Massacre of the Innocents
- This miniature was most likely taken from a book of hours. The Massacre of the Innocents usually appears at the beginning of the prayers recited at Vespers. The miniature was painted by a member of the Gold Scrolls Group, the name given to a circle of artists working in Bruges, ca. 1415-1455. The name derives from the group's frequent use of gold foliate ornament painted on backgrounds of flat color.
- This leaf comes from the same manuscript as Lewis E M 5:23-26. It can be dated to ca. 1430-1440.
