St. Felix (probably) performing an exorcism

This is the folio 146v of the Lives of the Saints (Vitae Sanctorum) from the Passionary of Weissenau; Vitae Sanctorum. As the page begins with a capital F, the character here depicted has been considered to be St. Felix, performing an exorcism.

Christ healing the possessed

From a manuscript preserved in the British Royal Library, this image is based on the 8th chapter of the Gospel of Matthew, verses 28-34: "And when he came to the other side, to the country of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed men met him, coming out of the tombs, so fierce that no one could pass that way."

Exorcism of St. Benedict, Spinello Aretino (1387)

Spinello Aretino was an Italian painter from Arezzo. His style strongly influenced the development of Renaissance painting, especially in Tuscany, in the 14th and 15th centuries. Art historians first believed him to be a disciple of Jacopo del Casentino, but this theory has now been debunked, and Aretino is considered the bridge uniting the school of Giotto and that of Siena.

St. Leo IX frees a possessed old man from evil spirits

The Passional of Weissenau, a manuscript dating from the 13th century, is preserved in the Bibliotheca Bodmeriana in Cologne, Germany. In the folium 191v. of this manuscript we find this image of St. Leo IX freeing a possessed old man from evil spirits.

From the life of St. Cuthbert

St. Cuthbert was a monk, bishop, and hermit from the early Northumbrian Catholic Celtic tradition in England. In this 12th-century manuscript, the Vita Sancti Cuthberti, preserved in Oxford University, we see a possessed man being healed with the holy water used in washing the dead body of the saint.
