The trials of three saints
Description: The trials of three saints. Thomas Becket is murdered by a group of four knights, witnessed by a monk, in the upper register. On the right side of the lower register, Margaret emerges from the belly of a dragon, and beats a demon with a flail. Catherine of Alexandria is shown on the left side of the lower register, praying amidst the dead bodies of the men who attempted to martyr her by breaking her over a wheel. An angel breaks the wheels with clubs.
