A Funeral with Marginal Scenes of Christ's
page is decorated with scenes of a medieval funeral surrounded by
pictures that demonstrate Christ's miracles and healing powers.
In the center, the Office of the Dead is illustrated with a scene
of a coffin being brought to church by a group of mourners. On the
far left, a grave is prepared. Lazarus rises from his tomb on Christ's
command below and the scenes on the right contain men and women
seeking Christ's aid.
