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."
