This cutting and Lewis E M 43:23a are from the same manuscript, and probably from the same folio. Each cutting shows an angels holding several of the Instruments of the Passion of Christ, or the "Arma Christi" (Weapons of Christ), as they are sometimes called. These are the objects associated with the pain and suffering that Christ experienced leading up to his death on the Cross. In this cutting, the angel holds a cross, a lance with a sponge at the end, and the Crown of Thorns. The Instruments of the Passion were revered as the weapons with which Christ defeated sin and saved mankind.
