10b St Cuthbert's prayers calm a storm and save sailors

This panel is one of two which together show St Cuthbert saving boats which were being blown out to sea by praying for God’s help. In written versions, he saves rafts of monks, but here sailors are shown in boats with full sails. Panel 22a shows monks praying ineffectively for the boats to be saved. In contrast, this panel shows St Cuthbert's prayers causing the boats to be blown back to safety.
