Psalm 95 - 96, ff. 172v

These pages show the harvesting of the ripe corn. At harvest time all men, women and children would work collectively to gather in the corn. This is reflected by the comparatively large number of people depicted. The miniatures accompany psalms of praise for the fruits provided by God; Psalm 95, verse 12: "The fields and all in them rejoice".
