Psalm 113 - 114, ff. 207v - 208

The miniatures in these pages are the culmination of a sequence of scenes of preparing and serving a meal. The psalms they accompany are psalms of thanksgiving for delivery from past troubles. The food prepared in the kitchen on the left-hand page is carried to the opposite page where Sir Geoffrey and members of his household sit at table. Several of the figures in these miniatures are so distinctive that it is likely they were meant to be specific people.
