Border Illustrating the Passion of Christ
A border with various illustrations from the Passion of Christ, including carrying the cross, washing the disciples’ feet, and being laid in a tomb. A man, presumably Luke, who is often portrayed holding a book, is standing on the left side of the border holding a quill and book. The Blessed Virgin Mary is standing on the right side of the border with her arms folded on her chest. This illustration appears at the beginning of the book of Acts in a Martin Luther translation of the New Testament.
