Christ: Miracle of healing Blind Born -- In foreground, Christ, crossed nimbus, extends right hand to eye of man, hands crossed on breast, staff under left arm, loop around left wrist attached to lead of small dog wearing collar next him. Two men, wearing hats, one only partly visible stand at left. At right are ten (?) apostles, most only tops of nimbi visible; the foremost touches the blind man with left hand on left shoulder. In background, visible through arcade, the blind man, with joined hands raised kneeling next to small dog, appears a second time, as does Christ, crossed (?) nimbus , raising right hand in blessing, standing over him. Possibly animal drinking from pool in distance, at base of hills and mountains. Text from John 9:1-7, Miracle of healing Blind Born, is on fol. 7r.
