The story of Ralph and Besing is spread over the whole of row 12. An innocent man called Ralph was unjustly accused of arson by a jealous neighbour named Besing. The case was to be decided through trial by combat. The two men kneel before the judge, placing their hands on an open book to swear an oath, while officials and bystanders look on. As with rows 5 and 6, all the row 12 panels are topped by architectural canopies set within the cusped panels of row 13 beneath the transom.
