St. Margaret, beginning her Suffrage
Suffrages in books of hours were prayers dedicated to various saints. St. Margaret of Antioch was a popular medieval virgin saint and martyr. According to her legend, she was swallowed by the Devil who appeared in the form of a dragon. Miraculously, she survived when after she made the sign of the cross, the beast's belly burst open, allowing her to climb out alive.
The number "92" is written in upper right corner of recto, indicating that this leaf was once f. 92 of the original manuscript.
