Initial V with the Martyrs of Ararat
This page begins the Suffrages, short prayers asking for the aid of the saints that are often included in books of hours. Suffrages are typically accompanied by portraits of the saints addressed in the prayers. This image portrays the deaths of St. Achatius and his companions, who were martyred on Mount Ararat by being impaled on tree branches.
While most of the manuscript is in Latin, the rubric that begins this section of the book is in Dutch.
