Edmund of England: Scene, Burial --The hand of God emerges above two men who are within a cross-surmounted church with twin towers. The men, one of whom is wearing a cap, are placing the shrouded body of Edmund in a strigillated sarcophagus. Two groups of men stand flanking the scene. The illustration has a patterned background and decorated frame.
