The St Cuthbert Window

20c St Cuthbert heals Hildmer's wife

This panel is the second of two that show St Cuthbert healing Hildmer’s wife, who was possessed by a demon. Hildmer is shown seeking Cuthbert’s help in panel 17c. Here, Cuthbert is blessing Hildmer’s wife, who sits in bed. Hildmer and the monk who was travelling with St Cuthbert stand to the left. Instead of meeting Hildmer’s wife outside the house, Cuthbert is shown at the woman’s bedside, following a pictorial, rather than written, version of the episode.
